Farmers Markets

Farmers' Markets are not a new creation; they have been around for centuries upon centuries, going back well before the Industrial Age when suppliers of food and other goods gathered to retail their wares.

Farmers Markets in Anne Arundel County and beyond have withstood the test of time in concept, as people still clamor for fresh-to-consumer produce straight from the farm. But there’s no question that they have evolved to meet the needs and demands, not to mention become quite the social gathering post for friends around town.

Anne Arundel County recognizes 10 markets in the area, but it’s hard to drive down a winding road, especially in the summer months, and not stumble upon a market where you can pick up fresh produce such as strawberries, corn, tomatoes, pumpkins, flowers, honey, eggs and more. Is there anything better than a juicy red strawberry, still warm from having just been plucked?

These days, farmers’ markets offer far more than just produce. You’ll find fresh seafood straight off the boats, bakers, cottage businesses like candle makers, dog treats, knife sharpeners, woodworkers, and the list goes on.

The many markets in our area provide a welcoming environment for locals and many times their dogs, a place to reconnect with each other which has been difficult to do during the pandemic, and the benefit of supporting area business owners and growers, knowing that what will be on your table tonight was likely harvested the day before.
