Obviously, a trip to the grocery store is a necessary start to a great beach vacation to stock up on everything from paper towels and sunscreen to all the ingredients needed to whip up a week's worth of family-friendly meals. Thankfully, the Outer Banks features plenty of grocery stores in all regions, and in all shapes and sizes, making it easy for visitors to stock up on supplies throughout their trip.
There are several large national and regional grocery store chains, although vacationers may want to make a quick stop by one of the local grocers for both a wide variety of standard staples, and specialty items that typically can't be found on chain grocery store shelves. Conner's Supermarket in Buxton and Burrus Red and White in Hatteras Village are two established grocery stores that have been in business for decades, and have everything a vacationer might need from fresh fish to gallons of milk.
Arrive for your vacation confident that everything on your weekly grocery store list will be accounted for - on the Outer Banks, where stores of all sizes are located in virtually every town, grocery shopping is always a breeze.
