Ocean City lifeguard stand

Boardwalk and Downtown merchants in Ocean City will give shoppers a summer preview during the one-day Market Madness event on Saturday, March 12 at the Ocean City Music Pier.

The one-day sale will bring together 40 different vendors under one roof and provide discounts on favorite local merchandise, goods and attractions. Hours for the event are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Food and drink will be available a la carte, and parking will be free in municipal lots adjacent to the boardwalk at Moorlyn Terrace, Eighth Street and Ninth Street.
