Farmers Market Returns with Local Beers, New Vendors, Same Great Produce

Market is Open Saturdays from May 14-Nov. 19 in Rockville Town Center

Rockville, Maryland, May 4 – Rockville’s Farmers Market returns Saturday, May 14 to give shoppers their pick of fruits and vegetables, bedding plants, cut flowers, preserves, honey, herbs, baked goods, and more from regional growers and producers.

This year’s market will feature 19 returning vendors and four new vendors, offering an expanded selection, including local beers, pickled veggies and soaps.

The market will be open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays, through Nov. 19 in the jury parking lot at the corner of Route 28 (E. Jefferson Street) and Monroe Street in Rockville Town Center.

The market participates in the Maryland Market Money Program. The program is intended to be an incentive for participants in federal nutrition benefit programs – the Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP), the Fruit and Vegetable Check Program (FVC) and the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) – to spend their benefits at the farmers market. Participants’ benefits are matched up to $5 per market visit while funds are available. Organizations or individuals wishing to contribute to the Maryland Market Money program can email specialevents@rockvillemd.gov.

Visit www.rockvillemd.gov/farmers for more information, including a list of participating vendors, approximate harvest dates for select fruits and vegetables, and a photo gallery. For more information, call 240-314-8620.
