It’s that time of year when winter’s thaw makes way for spring’s abundance of fresh food from Calvert County’s local farmers and agri-businesses. Farmers, vendors and watermen are encouraged to sign up to sell their wares at one of Calvert County’s three farmers markets.
The Calvert County Farmers Market Association is seeking vendors for three locations: CalvertHealth Medical Center, Calvert County Fairgrounds and Solomons Visitors Center.
These markets strive to be “producer-only” markets. All vegetables, fruits, herbs, tree nuts, meats, flowers, plants and other products sold at the markets must be grown/produced by a local farmer. The markets welcome participation from farmers throughout the Southern Maryland region.
New for the 2018 season, the Solomons market will move to the Solomons Visitors Center, located at 14175 S. Solomons Island Road. The Solomons market will be held on Sundays, June 3 through Sept. 9, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
