E.M. Corsa believes in magic and wild things. Nature, says the Kill Devil Hills artist, has been her muse from the start.

The green, barn-like shelter beckons from its roadside spot along the state highway, just a couple miles south of the U.S. 64 intersection on Roanoke Island. Under its shady confines, you’ll find fresh eggs, vegetables, canned goods and pasture-raised meats, as well as handmade soaps and tinctures, coffee and kombucha, and local artisans’ wares each Wednesday and Saturday until Thanksgiving.
