The Baltimore County Farmers' Market
at the Maryland State Fairgrounds
EVERY WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5 - OCTOBER 30
NEW TIME: 10 AM - 1 PM
Location: Fairgrounds Main Gate (North Side of Digital Sign)
THE BALTIMORE COUNTY FARMERS MARKET BLOOMS AGAIN FOR ITS 4TH YEAR. Approximately 10 Baltimore County farmers and producers have come together again to offer high quality local in-season produce, meats, milk, ice cream, eggs, flowers, goods, gifts, and more to the community. The Baltimore County Farmers Market, conveniently located with free parking at the Maryland State Fairgrounds Main Gate, north side of the digital sign, will take place every Wednesday, June 5 - October 30, 10 AM - 1 PM. Our Market is authorized to accept Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP), WIC Fruit & Vegetable and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Stamps.
"Our market is unique in that it is exclusively run by Baltimore County farmers with high-quality Baltimore County raised produce and more," said Baltimore County Farmers Market Manager Bill Langlotz. "A variety of fresh in-season fruit and vegetables starting with strawberries, asparagus, spinach, lettuce, spring onions and more will be available each week. Chicken, beef, eggs, honey, ice cream and baked goods are just a few of the other featured local items. It makes me hungry just to talk about it," added Langlotz.
Also, look for the Baltimore County Farmers Market during the 132nd Maryland State Fair, beginning Friday, August 23rd through Monday, September 2nd when the Farmers Market will be open every day. During the State Fair, the market will be located in the South end of the Fair's Farm & Garden building. Vendors will rotate from day to day and the Farm & Garden Building will be open Monday through Thursday from 12 noon to 10 p.m. and Friday through Sunday, and Labor Day Monday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, contact Baltimore County Farmers Market at 410-207-2165 or www.baltimorecountyfarmersmarket.com.
