Il Mercato
A state permitting clear perception and understanding; the area that may be seen distinctly or resolved into a clear image.

Il Mercato



Il Mercato, our very own marketplace featuring hand crafted items from Italy; an assortment of ceramics, beautiful biscotti jars, jewelry and Italian made floral scarves–brought to you this year in partnership with Simpatico-Italy’s Finest, of St. Michael’s MD. 

This year we will offer a wide variety of items that highlight the various cities and regions of Italy, celebrating the storied Italian lifestyle and creativity!

Il Mercato will also feature many of your favorite ceramics and other home decor items from prior years as well.

Be sure to stop by and experience the “Best of Italy” that you can take back to your home to enjoy year round!







Returning this year: a beautiful collection of artisan-crafted jewelry.  Atlantis Fine Jewels uses the purest gold (24k), silver (925) and finest gems. The artists’ styles are the marriage of the Ottoman/Roman Empire traditions and a fresh spirit of the 21st century.  Their aim and ambitions are to keep alive the ancient goldsmithing techniques passed down over centuries by their grandfathers
