Food Finds: Jersey Fresh Farmers' Markets
As a pre-teen and teenager, I summered in Wildwood (aka, Childwood, or DooWop City). When times were flush, we went to Cape May. In my adult years, late 20's through my 30's, Ocean City became the defacto place to go. The family friendly town with it's five-mile long boardwalk and famous Manco and Manco Pizzas (it'll always be Mack and Manco's to me), Kohr Bros. Ice Creams, and Johnson's Popcorn shops on every block were de riguer eating pastimes. I camped with a friend's family in a camp ground outside of Sea Isle. The only places I really never visited were Avalon and Stone Harbor - haughty places not akin to day trippers. So, after 40 plus years of wandering up and down the Route 9 coastal highway, I thoroughly enjoy calling the Sea Isle and Strathmere beaches ours. Especially Strathmere, the secret gem of this area. Shhh! You're in Strathmere - a mile long throw-back town that feels more like Nantucket than the Jersey Shore.
