Farm Adventures

Farm Adventures

While it may appear to visiting beachgoers that Sussex County’s #1 industry is sunshine and surf, in reality agriculture is our biggest economic driver. This is great news for visitors and locals alike because it means the restaurants of our Culinary Coast serve up delicious dishes made with the freshest possible ingredients – and so can you – just visit one of our fantastic farmers markets. It’s easy; there’s at least one taking place every day of the week in season!

Southern Delaware is also home to many farms that welcome visitors and sell their own home grown products, including some that you can pick yourself. If you’ve never been to an alpaca farm, a winery, or a lavender farm, or if you haven’t tried farm fresh ice cream, lavender chocolate, cherry cider, or bison burgers, visit our local farmers and nurserymen and expand your horizons! To learn more about each of these listings, just follow the links. To find them, click on the map below. Farmers Markets are not depicted on the map. 

Note: We suggest you call each venue for hours of operation prior to your visit.
