It’s the Naked Farmer, a mostly organic purveyor in Georgetown, that gives Twenty-Six chef Larry Sprowles corn, squash, yellow zucchini, cherry and grape tomatoes, and many other veggies that he turns into fresh-tasting coastal pub cuisine. Owner Jerry Richard has a longstanding relationship with Johnson’s Country Market in Roxana. Lindy’s Seafood of Tangier Island, Maryland, provides fresh local crabmeat in season. This summer try it in Sprowles’ simply prepared crab cakes with just-off-the-cob corn succotash. “Chef Sprowles loves to work with the best stuff,” Richard says. This season stop in for local sweet potato hash and roast pork tenderloin.
