Grocery Shopping - Ocean Sands

Hi there- We'll be staying in Ocean Sands in Corolla the last week of July (section O) and I was wondering if anyone is familiar with that area and what the options are for grocery shopping? Are there any Whole Foodsy type places or smaller local markets or mainly a big chain store? Would love to have access to both!! Thanks in advance for your replies!!

No Whole Foods. Your best bet is the Harris Teeter in Corolla. Also, check with your rental agency for other choices.

You will have a Food Lion and a Harris Teeter in Corolla to pick from. Harris T is more upscale.

Seaside Market near Timbuk2 is great for fruits and veggies and sweets and so much more. Seafood too!

Also, Tullio's in Duck has yummy desserts! If you want the freshest seafood, you need to go to "Billy's" in Collington Harbor - just south of the Wright Memorial.

Another upscale local market is Tommy's in Duck. They have all sorts of specialty items and a meat counter too. Expensive, but if that's what you're looking for.... It's at the north end of town, across from Cook Drive.

All previous posts are very accurate. Very convenient to you in Ocean Sands is both a Food Lion and a Harris Teeter. The vegetable market stand is good for the fresh items, but only store like you mentioned is Trader Joe's back in Virginia Beach. There is nothing you are passing on the way up the OBX peninsula either. Have a great vacation. We used to love Ocean Sands before we bought in Southern Shores.
