For Food Lovers

Everyone eats. But food is more than mere sustenance; it can provide nourishment in many senses. Food is the organizing principle of farmers markets, which exist to bring choices that may be hard to find in other locations within a community. For this and more reasons, Food Lovers are a vital part of our work.

We want you to have the best experience possible when you visit a farmers market – from finding the location of a market near you to feeling confident about picking the best fruits and vegetables to prepare meals with, we hope to help you enjoy and savor your time at market in your community.


We can help you find the right market for you – whether your decision is based on location or offerings, we can help you locate the farmers market that fits your needs.  Our Find a Market tool is the best place to start.

If you are a participant in Federal Nutrition Benefits Programs, we are working to ensure that you can use them at market.  Find more information on our focus on food access through the Eat Fresh Maryland Network and our work towards a statewide incentive program Maryland Market Money.
