A new growing season officially begins when Baltimore’s Farmers’ Market under the JFX reopens for the year on Sunday, April 8.
Other nearby markets will open in May and June, while the 32nd Street/Waverly Market is open year round.
All of the markets offer locally grown produce from nearby farms, including many that are right in Baltimore City. Can’t get more local than that.
In addition, many have a wide assortment of other farm products, including dairy products, eggs, meat, poultry, seafood and prepared foods, as well as local crafts.
Going to the market makes for a great family outing, plus you’ll be supporting the folks that do all the hard work with such loving care. Here are the five closest markets to our neighborhood.
