This is Tommy's Market, a family owned and run business. They are very friendly here, this place has food that is so fresh you think it's going to craw out of the bag before you get it to the pot. Shopping here is MUCH cheaper than eating out in this town full of FINE DINING RESTAURANT! THey have what you will need for your whole vacation, so stop by and say hi!
We did not go to this shop because we had heard it was pricey. Instead we went up to the Food Lion in Corolla to do our grocery shopping. I understand Tommys closes in the winter.
What to buy: On our last day in Duck, we found out that Tommy's Market also has dinners to go. Instead of coming out in the cold and looking for a restaurant that was open, we could have bought something at Tommy's and eaten at the unit. These seem a bit pricey too.

The Duck Waterfront Shops include 18 stores in a boardwalk setting on the soundside. Some might call it tacky, but I think a soundside boardwalk is more natural up here than it would down the road a piece.
What to buy: They offer everything from shoes, books, art, and kayaks, to candy and toys. The Blue Point Bar and Grill offers lunch, supper, and good soundside views at sunset.
What to pay: A little too rich for my blood, but then again, I'm a tightwad.
Scarborough Faire is Duck's most original shopping village. It is the kind of shopping centre that doesn't overtake the natural ambience, but becomes a part of it. Shoppers can stroll along winding boardwalks under the trees, eat and shop at 16 exclusive stores filled with a bunch of stuff you'll only find at here.
What to buy: Just about anything including parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Seriously, these shops are more artsy than a lot of them down the highway. I like the ambience of the place, but I'm not too keen on a lot of the merchandise.
What to pay: The artsy nature of the place commands higher prices than I'm willing to pay.
