‘Fill the Jar’ Campaign launched

by Amy Crone

This holiday season, MDFMA is working on a number of creative ways for everyone to give back and support us in providing more food for hungry families while also providing additional income for our local farmers.

One of those ways is with our new “Fill the Jar” campaign.  At four participating markets in Baltimore City, look for our bright yellow MDFMA tablecloth and the mason jar where you can donate directly with Davon.

Participating Markets include:

We hope to see you at market – with only a few weeks left in the season for these markets take advantage and stock up on local fruits, vegetables and food!
