Think globally and eat locally -- at least that’s a popular mentality in this age of the Slow Food Movement and craze for organic produce. The Outer Banks makes this lifestyle accessible, too, with plenty of vegetable stands and farmers markets overflowing with fresh, locally produced goods. Outer Banks vegetable stands and farmers markets may come and go with the seasons or pop up with festivals and events that occur weekly, monthly or annually. Many of the vegetable stands are open air so the smell of fresh corn, tomatoes, peaches and more mingle with the summer air to create amazing aromas. Farmers markets also tend to include produce in their wares as well as homemade jams and jellies, baked pies, meats and more. Local artisans might choose to sell their crafts at a farmers market or two, and you might get the opportunity to view and purchase some artwork. So if you’re on the hunt for locally sourced produce and goods, you won’t want to miss Outer Banks vegetable stands and farmers markets!
