About Us


Let me tell you a little story


Acadia Vendors Market is owned by David Horner and Holly Masterson. As fisherman working together for decades, Holly and Dave wanted to create a space where local entrepreneurs could sell their products, while supporting the local community. Together they formed Acadia Vendors Market. Since then, the market has grown to include local farmers, artists, collectors, restaurateurs and more, making their products accessible to our community and visitors from across the area. Acadia Vendors Market is an all-in-one destination for fans of local small businesses. Mount Desert Island welcomes you and we hope to see you at our market soon!
