If you’re a seasoned cook, then you know that the quality of your food matters. You also know that locally sourced ingredients cultivated with care yield the healthiest, tastiest eats. That’s why you should be shopping for everything from fresh produce to fresh bread at the Anne Arundel County Farmers' Market. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. year-round with extra weekly events added in the warmer months.
Its list of local vendors is extensive and ever-changing, including a large roster of local farms as well as artisans, bakers, and even coffee roasters. Come to the next market on South Truman Parkway to fill your fridge with fresh veggies from The Bay Mushrooms and Oksana’s Produce Farm or ripe fruit from Blades Orchard. Local milk awaits at the booth helmed by Nice Farms Creamery with grass-fed meats nearby from Prosperity Acres. Looking for a loaf of bread to go with dinner? Grab one at Great Harvest Bread Co. You’ll also find one-of-a-kind works of art from River Rock Glass Studio, Muddy Art Pottery, and other artists from around the Chesapeake Bay Area.
