Locally Grown Food for Thanksgiving in Ocean City

Ocean_Pines_Farmers_Market_Ocean_city

As Thanksgiving approaches, Ocean City is many minds, because they will take a well deserved break from the raucous of life, and walk on the beach and enjoy their Thanksgiving meal at one of the restaurants or hotels in the area offering Thanksgiving dinner. Others though may stay traditional and want to cook. Maybe you live in the area, maybe you have a vacation home here, or maybe you have taken advantage of the great off-season rates at one of home rentals here in OC.

No matter how you came to be here for the Thanksgiving break, if you chose to cook dinner, then you need to find a place to buy it. The movement for more locally sourced foods has caused many farmer’s markets to pop-up, and we wanted to let you know where you could find them. Farmers Markets don’t run on the same “9 to 5” as a regular grocery store, and most have closed for the season, but one is open and has special hours just for Thanksgiving.
