Then, head over to Potomac Highlands Food & Farm Market for a taste of their soup and salad bar— all sourced locally! Take some fresh bread, maple syrup and jams to go. Then, spend your evening exploring either Blackwater Falls State Park or Canaan Valley Resort State Park before getting some rest at The Purple Fiddle.
Rise & Shine! Grab some coffee and a fresh pastry from The Purple Fiddle before making the trek to Capon Bridge to check out The Farmer’s Daughter Market & Butcher. Here, browse the selection of local meat – like bacon butternut or parmesan parsley sausages.
Don’t forget to take a look at the local coffee, fresh figs and what they’ll be serving up on the sandwich board for lunch! Snag a gem like one topped with city ham, pimento cheese, pickles, hot sauce, tater tots and mayonnaise for lunch before heading through Cacapon Resort State Park.
