While many Maryland farmers markets fold up their tents towards the end of October or November, there are some that remain open year-round to provide local food through the winter months.
- 32nd Street / Waverly (Baltimore City)
- Silver Spring FRESHFARM Market (Montgomery County)
- Takoma Park (Montgomery County)
- Westfield Annapolis (Anne Arundel County)
And while the Farmers Market Nutrition Program ended on November 25th, and incentive programs are concluded for the season, there remain other options for food assistance through the winter. Fruit and Vegetable Checks and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are both year-round programs, so markets that have FVC-authorized farmers and accept SNAP will continue to provide fresh local food from November through the spring market openings.
Don’t let winter dampen your commitment to Maryland farmers markets – bundle up and get out to a year-round market soon!
