Discovering Delicious in Cape Charles – Beach Market: Seafood, Produce, Deli, Wine, Beer and More…
Saunter up to the wide front porch, walk into the new Beach Market, and you’ll see that the sign doesn’t tell the whole story. The words, “…and More” are doing a lot of work here! Yes, Beach Market offers fresh seafood, deli delights and great beverages, but that’s only the beginning.
We spoke with proprietor Gina Butler about great food, personal service and how Beach Market is quickly becoming a destination for great dining, grabbing prepared meals to go, and so much more.
A Fresh Idea
“We opened in June and it’s been great,” says Gina, who lives at Bay Creek with her husband, Greg. The idea for Beach Market began a few years prior, with Gina recognizing a need for a fresh seafood market in Cape Charles. “At that time, I was running across the Bay at least twice a week to get the kind of food we wanted…the really nice beef and seafood. There was no fresh seafood market in Cape Charles then.”
The town is now home to several seafood suppliers, but Beach Market is unique. It’s a one- stop powerhouse offering fresh seafood, steaks hand-cut daily, a full deli, fresh soups, salads, sandwiches and decadent desserts that thrill.
This summer, they became a favorite stop for visitors and locals alike who couldn’t get enough of their Key Lime Pie, Strawberry Pie, and Sweet Potato Biscuits. Their Crab Pretzel and traditional Eastern Shore Crab Cake approached celebrity status, too.
“We have seven tables on our porch out front. It’s a great place to enjoy wine or a craft brew, or appetizers, and just relax. Now that summer is winding down, many more locals have discovered us,” Gina smiles.
A Simple Recipe for Success
It’s easy to see why Beach Market is gaining new fans every day. Gina and her team love to prepare good food and they make it easy to enjoy.
The food here is pure magic, and dining on the porch is divine but it’s the unique flexibility that really makes Beach Market a bit of a unicorn. They do prepared meals—ideal for visitors enjoying a no- cook vacation week or residents who want an easy meal or a fantastic spread for a special occasion.
“Don’t feel like cooking? We have prepared meals of all kinds ready to take home,” says Gina.
It’s easy. Stop in, grab prepared items like their twice-baked potatoes, rotisserie chicken, or rack of ribs, and warm them up at home. “The offerings change every day based on what we have fresh,” Gina explains. “We have dips soups, bread, sauces, charcuterie boards, usually made that morning, ready to go.”
