MARKET POLICIES

  No Driving on the Market premises during Market hours
We are open Rain or Shine.
 No Pets Please!
(We have been strongly advised by the county health dept that dogs and food are not a good mix. Plus we have artists who deal with delicate items like glass. If a dog happened to pounce, their display would be ruined. Lastly and perhaps most importantly, there have been maulings, including one at a Baltimore Farmers market. We don't want to take a risk.)

Year-Round Market

The Year-Round (or No-Frills) Market opens on Sunday November 13, and will continue through May 7 (Sunday before Mother's Day). Although many of the "frills" you're accustomed to seeing during the regular Market season (music, chef demonstrations, be-fit tents and demonstrations, tables and chairs) won't be there, many of the long-time vendors will be participating, as well as many new ones. 

Here's some of what you'll find:  Wonderful sweet potatoes, red potatoes, turmeric, mushrooms, greens, onions, winter squash, Jerusalem artichoke, apples, scones, crab cakes, soup, dip, cupcakes, cookies, pies, croissants, wine, distilled spirits, beer, handmade jewelry, handmade crafts and so much more.
