Winter Farmers Markets

by Amy Crone

Some farmers markets in Maryland stay open all winter – so you can still see your favorite farmers all year round! For the first time, the Maryland Department of Agriculture has published a new guide to Winter Farmers Markets, so that you can find all 18 locations that are open throughout the state between January and early March.

Bundle up, brave the cold, and get out to market to thank your farmers for bringing the best produce to us year-round!

You can also find your nearest farmers market in our Find a Market tool – so that you can plan to be there on opening day in the spring.
