Grab your market basket and fill it with the best locally grown fruits and vegetables: it’s the summer harvest season! Strolling through the colorful produce stands of the green market at the Ocean Pines Farmers & Artisans Market is a late-summer rite of passage. Green and golden zucchini, rambunctious melons and just-picked corn beg you to take them home to be devoured.
How about a peach pie or a slice of gourmet cheese? Breathe deep the aroma of locally-roasted coffee and the music from the Market Stage that fills the marketplace air. Try the jams and jellies – they’re delicious! Slip on your comfy shoes and arrive ready to slow down and savor the market experience. Talk with the merchants – it’s a nostalgia experience, lost to past generations. Shop for unique specialty items at the beloved public market in Worcester County. And don’t forget to grab a bouquet of fresh-cut local flowers on your way out!
