of outdoor shopping to satisfy even the biggest
shopoholic. It's also the best time of year to
buy the freshest produce local farmers can offer.

You name it, they've got it. It's just that simple.
Outlet shopping has grown exponentially in the
last 10 years or so, but Woodbury is one of the
originators of a cluster of stores selling out-of-season
merchandise to people who couldn't care less once
they see the 30 to 80 percent markdowns on everyday
needed items. Come on, how does a frying pan go
out of fashion?
Looking for clothes? They have everything from
Armani to Zegna. Are house wares more your thing?
How about Corning, Le Creuset, Mikasa, Villeroy
& Boch, Wedgewood and Williams-Sonoma?
You can start the kids off at Carters and work
your way up through Stride Rite and Osh Kosh until
they get to Gap Kids.
And the shoes - there are 32 shoe outlets, ranging
from Kenneth Cole and Nine West to Saucony and
