 Ocean Pines Farmers Market! 8am – 12 White Horse Park  

This Week @ Ocean Pines Farmers Market –

Peter the Bread Man
is taking inspiration from the Eastern European counties for his newest artisan bread.    Peter tells us, “The Eastern Europeans love a dark, coarse rye bread and I’ve added these flavors to my sourdough bread.”  Try a boule of Peter’s new Black Sour Rye and experience the robust flavor.   Some of the other artisan breads found at Peter’s market stand include Spinach and Feta, Cranberry Walnut, Parmesan Herb and Russian Egg Bread.

D. J. David & Company has local wildflower honey.   This raw and unfiltered honey comes from a Worcester County apiary that is located amongst several organic farmed homesteads.  Look for fresh seasonal produce that will include potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, shallots, leeks, winter greens, winter squashes, turnips, red beets, rutabagas and much more.

Oertel Seafood returns with fresh oysters and clams.

Tyaskin Pasture Fresh Farms will be at market with eggs.

Sweet Faith will have their homemade cookies & confections.
