Farmers Markets

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

Farmer's 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.


Supporting local isn't just great for the economy; it's delicious, too!

Anne Arundel County recognizes several markets in the area. Still, 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 produce. You'll find fresh seafood straight off the boats, bakers, cottage businesses like candle makers, dog treats, knife sharpeners, woodworkers, and so 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 challenging 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.
