Feast for Farms & Families 10/19

by Juliet Glass

The Maryland Farmers Market Association is excited to announce our second annual Feast for Farms and Families fundraiser to support Maryland Market Money, our statewide program that matches purchases made at participating farmers markets using federal food assistance. Restaurants throughout the state are generously donating a portion of their proceeds to MDFMA on October 19th. Find out which restaurants are participating here and plan on grabbing a bite at one of these fine establishments.  You’ll be helping us feed more than 17,000 hungry Marylanders this farmers market season!
