Shopping in Deep Creek and Garrett County
I don’t know about you, but shopping is always at the top of my list of things to do when visiting a new place. Heck, it’s even on the top of my list at times when I’m just looking for something to do while at home.
Here’s a quick list of shopping opportunities we have here. With antiques, books, clothes, t-shirts, Christmas ornaments, and more, this list reaches far across the spectrum of goods.
Park your car, walk and shop! The Book Mark’et & Antique Mezzanine, End of the Line Bookstore, Cabin Fever Antiques, Englander’s Antiques & Grill, The Painted Cupboard, The Garrett County Art Council Gallery Shop, Rudy’s, and the Favorite Things Corner Gift Shop, Flipside Sounds, and the Mountain Fresh Farmers Market are all located within a couple blocks of each other.
These aren’t in downtown, but they’re close. Walmart and the Farmers Market, home of Candyland are both on 219. Easy to get to and have the essentials.
At the Lake
You can’t park your car and walk to all of these, but they’re located in the northern and central areas of the lake. Places to consider: Tourist Trap, Christmas Chalet, Bear Creek Traders, Grand Central Furniture, Railey Design Studio, TruSouth, Schoolhouse Earth, and a special shout out to my friend Marcia who just opened Cashmere Clothing Co., a women’s boutique store.
There’s also a Dollar General at the lake in McHenry if you need a quick essentials run. Say hi to manager Angie for me if you visit!
Grant’s Mercantile and Little Crossings Pantry are right next to each other and also neighbor one of my favorite Garrett County restaurants, The Cornucopia Café. Rumor has if they’ve bottled up the café’s homemade salted caramel coffee creamer and are selling it at the Pantry store. This trio of places is worth the drive!
