Best Place to Eat Local
Critics, upstate: “Highland Orchards grows most of the vegetables it sells,” says Harold Gray. Owners use no synthetic chemicals or genetically modified seeds, nor do they employ hormones to speed growth. Find rhubarb, asparagus and strawberries in May, cherries, red raspberries and blueberries in late June, followed by juicy peaches and tomatoes. July brings cucumbers and peppers. And in October—well, you get the idea. Don’t miss the pressed cider and freshly baked pies. (1431 Foulk Road, Wilmington, 478-4042)
Critics, downstate: In addition to supplying the beach area with organic, naturally grown local produce and plants, Good For You Natural Market maintains its own one-acre market garden farm, free of herbicides and pesticides. Up from the ground come peas, spring greens, Swiss chard, summer squash, tomatoes, potatoes and more—all picked and sold the same day. (28841 Lewes-Georgetown Hwy., Lewes, 684-8330)
