Kelsick Specialty Market
For more than two decades, Kelsick Specialty Market on Main Street has been Virginia’s Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck connection to fine wines, craft beer (more than 200 varieties), gourmet foods, elegant gifts and wonderful meals. Complimentary wine and beer tastings are held the first Thursday and Friday of each month. www.kelsickmarket.com
Established in 2000, the Fairfield Foundation began with a focus on archaeological research and public outreach at Fairfield Plantation in Gloucester County, the prominent seat of the Burwell family, and home to generations of other families, both free and enslaved. In 2010 they purchased the 1930 Edge Hill Service Station on Main Street and transformed it into the Center for Archaeology, Preservation, and Education (CAPE). www.fairfieldfoundation.org
