SEASIDE FARM MARKET
Corolla, with its Jeep-friendly beach and roving pony population, is where you go on the Outer Banks to get away from it all. Seaside Farm Market makes it possible to stay away, too, by stocking everything you need for an all-local beach house supper. Snack on hot, boiled peanuts while you browse the sun-warmed tomatoes, corn, cukes, potatoes, peaches, and anything else in season. The fish counter is stocked daily with clams, blue crabs, grouper, mahi-mahi, and shrimp. Steamer pots with sausage and shellfish are stove-to-table ready. Dessert, a square of homemade fudge, is best eaten on your own deck — no tipping required.
