I Want Candy!!!

    We still officially have 1 day to go until spring but Mother Nature has been very kind in providing us with some sunshine & warmer temperatures.  Life in the mountains can be very unpredictable so we know that we are in no-way out of snows way but for now, it feels wonderful. We are even starting to get notifications from the local golf courses of possible opening days. There are so many fun activities to do here in the spring.
    Speaking of things to do, I recently took the afternoon off to check out some of our local shops. While I can go on and on about all of the great little shops here at Deep Creek Lake & the surrounding area, one my very favorite and one that I feel it is my duty to tell you about is Candyland/ Farmer’s Market in Oakland, our county seat. While many visitors coming to our area make a stop at our local Wal-Mart, many of them are unaware that just 2 minutes farther away is a store filled with hundreds of different kinds of candy which can be purchased already bagged or by the pound. A true plethora of sugary goodness! Starbursts, Swedish fish, Snickers, Laffy Taffy, chocolate covered everything! Allow yourself one day of totally indulge your sweet tooth! Who doesn’t love Candyland?
Fresh produce
Conveniently and as if they knew the guilt would hit you at some point, the other half of the store is the Farmer’s Market! Stocked full of fresh fruits and veggies, many of which are grown locally, a win-win all around! They also have specialty dips, jams, soups, and large bins filled with a variety of different nuts! You will also find a nice assortment of cheeses including a small selection of goat cheeses. A very uniquely divided store; gather as much candy and chocolate as possible on one side and stock up on your much needed fruits and veggies on the other side! You definitely want to stop here!
Have you planned your spring getaway yet? Spring in the mountains is a must! It’s just a nice and peaceful time to visit while still having a ton of choices for things to do whether you choose horseback riding, mountain biking or hiking, golf, fishing, or just simply want to get away!
