Farmers markets open for season

June 10, 2011

With the growing season well under way, Maryland farmers are anticipating a bounty of fresh products to deliver to the Free State's consumers. And with more than 120 farmers markets spread across every county and Baltimore City, it is easy to connect with neighboring farmers and get fresh, local produce.

According to the Maryland Department of Agriculture, many markets have already opened, offering early-season produce and plants such as kale, salad greens, spinach, asparagus, strawberries, hanging flower baskets, bedding plants and garden seedlings. 

A directory for farmers' markets in the state with detailed information can be found at www.mda.state.md.us/md_products/farmers_market_dir.php or find the link at the Maryland Farm Bureau website at www.mdfarmbureau.com.
