Thank you

by Amy Crone

As 2016 draws to a close, we’d like to take a moment to say THANK YOU – to all of our supporters, our farmers, our market managers, and to everyone who shops at their local farmers market. We appreciate your dedication to local food, agriculture, and wellness in support of our farmers and the health of our communities.

We are excited for 2017 and look forward to continue to serving the farmers market community as best we can – providing increased food access, technical assistance, and a strong network of viable farmers markets throughout the state of Maryland.

May you have a happy, healthy holiday season surrounded by loved ones and cheers to welcoming 2017 with open arms and a smile.
