Finally, Beach Food Meets Its Match: Fruit Stands On (Near) The Board Walk?

June 7th, 2010

Who doesn’t love the beach? I sure do.


The sun, the sand, the kids, the views….

But  the snacks sold on the boardwalk do nothing for a beach body.

You know the drill.

Soda. Pizza. Ice Cream.  Taffy. Chips.


So I was beyond excited over Memorial Day weekend when I spied this little stand set up a stone’s throw from the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk.


“It’s a trial,” the woman selling strawberries told me.

Determined to support that trial, I bought two cartons of the fresh, local Delaware-grown  strawberries.  (They weren’t even organic, and I still bought them!)

So this last weekend when I hit Rehoboth Avenue once again, I set out to look for my favorite beach fruit stand.

But sadly, it wasn’t there.


What gives? Worried that my one healthy “street food” choice was gone, I called the fruit stand’s owners, Fifer Orchards.

And I’ve got good news for all you fresh fruit fanatics: the stand will be back on the 4th of July, and hopefully most weekends thereafter till August.

What about you? Have you seen fruit stands near your favorite boardwalk before?

    How exciting Lynn! I will be in Rehoboth over the 4th – so I will look for them! Any chance you will be there then?

    When I go down to Ocean City, MD, I usually don’t go to the boardwalk, but I do see plenty of stands along the way back through Delaware. I love the fresh fruits and veggies some of the places have, but I have noticed a few don’t carry many local items.

    How funny, I would have never expected you to visit RB all the way from MN! I’m so glad you happened upon this, Micaela! And I’ll be in touch with my other beach tips too…I have a list of about 40 things you can do in RB with a kid when it rains! :) (But here’s hoping it doesn’t rain…!)

    Yes, those fruit stands along the road are great, but this is really something new! I hope it catches on! Thanks for your comment, Patrick!
