Go Local This Thanksgiving with the Rockville Farmers Market

Rockville, Maryland, Nov. 10 – Find farm-fresh fall produce from regional grower/producers on the final two Saturdays of this year’s Rockville Farmers Market.

The market offers an opportunity to add local flavor to your Thanksgiving feast with fruits and vegetables, cut flowers, preserves, honey, herbs, baked goods and more, including local pumpkins and apples.

It is open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays, Nov. 12 and 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. For more information, call 240-314-8620.
