Yes, the Howard County Farmers Markets open tomorrow at Miller Library at 2 pm. The first of five straight days of producer only markets. Three are at libraries. One at the hospital and one at a village center.
I have been going to our county markets since they first opened. Back when our local market was on Cedar Lane at the church. Of course, back then I also hit Clarks Farm produce stand on the way home, too.
There is nothing like freshly picked fruit and veggies, or fresh meat and dairy. It looks like we are getting a creamery back into the market to replace South Mountain leaving us. That means fresh milk.
I will be blogging about each market. I really intend to hit all five of them if I can, in their first two weeks of being open, just to see what they are offering this year.
Even though the weather is rainy and grey, spring is definitely here when the markets open.
Buy local. Support our MD, VA and PA farms in our surrounding area.
This year it looks like they are expanding to include producers of other items. I am intrigued to check out the Thai vendor.
And, of course, to get my Stone House Bakery fix.
See you there?
