Ocean City NJ: National Honeybee Awareness Day!

NJ Honey at the OC Farmer's Market

Who knew? August 20 is National Honeybee Awareness Day!  Happily, those of us who visit the Ocean City Farmer's Market can stock up on delicious, local honey weekly. Sweet!

A recent post from edibleJERSEY talked about the many attributes of the honeybee and the product of its industry, "...Honey, thanks to the tireless industry of the Honey Bee, is a miracle product of nature. Besides its delightful sweetness, honey is also effective as an antibiotic for treating burns, soothes sore throats and offers relief to many allergy sufferers."

We particularly enjoy honey on whole wheat pancakes and in hot tea.  Honey is always available in the Scarborough Inn's Butler's Pantry for those who share a passion for this sweet, natural treat!  If you're in Ocean City on Wednesdays when the Farmer's Market is open (seasonally), New Jersey honey might be the perfect purchase for yourself...or as a gift! (Remember, the market is located on the Tabernacle grounds - only a 10-minute stroll from the Inn.)
