Now that summer is officially here, it’s a great time to head into Oakland, our county seat. Mountain Fresh Producers Association has once again started the Farmers Market located downtown on Wednesdays & Saturdays form 10 am until 1pm from now until the end of October. Help support the future of agriculture in our area while enjoying a wide variety of fresh veggies and fruit. There are also a bevy of other treats to choose from including jams & jellies, baked goods, crafts, plants and herbs. Definitely well worth the short drive.
While in downtown, you may find yourself being lured into the new shop, Brewed Awakenings Coffeehouse, by the intoxicating smell of coffee and cappuccino. I recently had the pleasure of taking a writing workshop that was held in the coffee shop a few nights a week. There is something so satisfying about the smell of coffee and fresh baked goods! They offer a large selection of muffins, cookies, bagels, and more. The shop is also charming in décor giving a carefree but spirited vibe. Stop by and say “Hello” to Karen, the shop’s proprietor the next time you are in Oakland.
There is still time left to reserve a home for your Fourth of July celebration here @ Deep Creek Lake. We have opened up all of our homes to allow for partial week stays. You do not want to miss the fabulous fireworks show held over Wisp Mountain on the 4th.
