“Where’s the nearest grocery store?”

 

It’s a question we are asked a lot. After choosing which Outer Banks vacation home to book, figuring out what to eat is often the next step in planning a trip. A week-long vacation means you are going to need to plan a lot of meals and buy a large number of snacks! Luckily, the Outer Banks has many different types of grocery stores and local markets to choose from. Many OBX grocery stores offer grocery pickup and/or delivery. There are even fresh NC produce bags that you can preorder and pick up on your way into town! 

 

Coronavirus COVID-19 Safety Measures

Grocery stores on the Outer Banks are following guidelines recommended by the CDC to slow the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19. Guidelines include sanitizing and added social distancing measures, including one-way aisles or allowing a reduced number of shoppers inside. Safety measures are noted for stores below if available. Coronavirus COVID-19 safety measures have evolved quickly, so please check each establishment’s website for the most updated safety measures. 

As in your hometown, supplies of certain items may be limited. There may be increased lead times for pickup and delivery orders for stores on the Outer Banks. Please check with the store or the Instacart app prior to placing your order for more information on available pickup/delivery times.

Currently, in Dare County, masks or cloth face coverings are recommended to be worn in public settings, like grocery stores. Towns in Dare County include Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, and Manteo.
