VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Tables and tents are being put up Saturday morning for the Military Owned Market, a once-a-month event showcasing some of the region's veteran-owned small businesses.

Over 20 businesses are expected to be at the market, with products ranging from food, coffee, handmade products and more on sale.

Alexandra Craig, the organizer and a military spouse, said this event is a great way to support local businesses and veterans while keeping dollars local.
