On June 15, Anchor & Den in the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort held its first Night Market. The Father’s Day-themed event was dubbed a big success, bringing hundreds of residents and visitors through the doors to sample various wares.

This Friday, the team at the Marriott’s Beach House plan to do it all again with the Midsummer Night’s Dream Market, starting at 6 p.m.

The evening features a collaboration between Anchor & Den and The Mercantile retail space. Promising “the ultimate shopping experience,” the market includes live bands and music, delicious summer street food, handcrafted cocktails, family activities and lots of summer-inspired retail items.

You can browse the food and beverage stalls and be tempted by the Aperitif Bar, Pie Hut, Mojito Bar, Summer Rolls Stall, Croquette Station and Fishmonger Stand, just to name a few. There will also be a traditional English Beer & Cider Garden set up outside for guests to enjoy an authentic summer drinking experience under the stars.

After grabbing a bite to eat and with a summery cocktail in hand, guests are welcome to peruse the retail stalls, where a fun selection of endless summer goods will be available to buy. Some of the cool brands that will be showcased are: Stylish canvas bags and accessories from Forestbound; cozy beach towels from Beach People; funky sunglasses from Boni Clyde and Etnia; irresistible swimwear from Cali-Dreaming, Made By Dawn and Capittana, and the very popular candles and room spray from Sydney Hale, featuring the exclusive Beach House scent.
