The Ocean Pines Farmers Market is pleased to welcome several new vendors to its current summer season roster. These vendors enhance the range of products offered at the market, open every Saturday year-round from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at White Horse Park in Ocean Pines.
Great Shoals Winery, of Kensington, Md., joins the market’s growing list of vintners. It offers wine, sparkling wine and hard cider. The winery uses apples, pears, peaches, grapes, and other fruits from local and regional sources to create dry sparkling wines using the traditional méthode champenoise.

Beginning Sept. 13 and continuing through the fall and winter, Alaska Wild Seafoods, of Seaford, Del., will be selling wild-caught salmon, cod, halibut and ling cod. All of the seafood is caught and flash-frozen in Alaska, where the owners spend their summers fishing.
Other recent vendor additions include Thank God It’s Gluten Free from Berlin, offering a range of gluten-free products, and Tout de Suite Patisserie from Milton, Del., offering French pastries and bread. This fall, local businesses Dolle’s Candy and Little Miss Lovely, who will be returning with handcrafted floral arrangements, will be among the vendors at the market.
