The Fresh Pride

The one thing that unites the two types of people on Chincoteague Island, Virginia—the “Come-Heres” and the “From-Heres”—is the island’s lone grocery store. In this Tropcast, I speak with tourists, locals, my parents, and some fellow Trop writers, and try to get to the bottom of the greatest mystery in all of Chincoteague: the eternal stink of the Fresh Pride Supermarket.
