This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

Buy Local Challenge

Take the pledge (click here) and then go buy some local products.  One of the rumors connected with the Weis buy out of the Food Lions is that they prefer to sell local products in their stores.  That's a good thing, but with all of our roadside produce vendors and established shops, we are very fortunate that we already have access to lots of local products.  

In South County for instance, we have the Home Grown Market at Hermanville,  Sivak's just below there, Trossbach's Produce Stand located in Scotland and Kellam's Seafood adjacent St. Michael's Church in Ridge.  (Check out excellent Rick Boyd article on Paul in a recent Enterprise (click here.)  

Another place I like is up in Morganza on Dr. Johnson Road (just after Chopticon High School)  Friendly Hall Farm.  They have a wide variety of  local products including meats, produce, honey and fruits.

Go buy some local stuff not just this week but whenever you can.
