The Outer Banks, Buxton, NC

So after getting settled in at our Carolina Treasure vacation rental in Frisco, it was time to find the local grocery. We drove back up to Buxton and headed into Connor’s Supermarket to load up on supplies for the week. This is a great grocery with friendly staff and a really good variety with essentials to gourmet offerings. They also have a few aisles of beach accessories, sunscreen, dramamine and most anything you might need.

Buxton Seafood is located right under the water tower, so you can’t miss it. We got some fresh fish and shrimp for a few meals.

The fried calamari strips with marinara were tasty and the hush puppies moist and yummy.
