The Annapolis & Anne Arundel County Conference and Visitors Bureau has opened a new satellite information center at the Market House across from City Dock in downtown Annapolis. The AAACCVB and nine other vendors, mostly area food and specialty businesses, have signed short-term leases to operate at the city-owned landmark until Jan. 2, 2012.
The seasonal information booth that the AAACCVB has traditionally operated next to the harbor master’s office will be closed during this time. Staffed by volunteers, the Market House satellite information center is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The short-term Market House vendors are: b.b. Bistro; Chick & Ruth’s Delly; Firenzes Coffee & Gelato; Jerrie’s on the Shore; Maryland Table; Myra’s Popcorn Kitchen; Pit Boys Oyster & Raw Bar; Wimsey Cove; and Wok Your Way. The city will also be assigning space within the Market House to nonprofit organizations on a rotating basis.
