Calvert County Farmers Markets Seek Vendors

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – April 10, 2018 – It’s that time of year when winter’s thaw makes way for spring’s abundance of fresh food from Calvert County’s local farmers and agri-businesses. Farmers, vendors and watermen are encouraged to sign up to sell their wares at one of Calvert County’s three farmers markets.

The Calvert County Farmers Market Association is seeking vendors for three locations: CalvertHealth Medical Center, Calvert County Fairgrounds and Solomons Visitors Center.

These markets strive to be “producer-only” markets. All vegetables, fruits, herbs, tree nuts, meats, flowers, plants and other products sold at the markets must be grown/produced by a local farmer. The markets welcome participation from farmers throughout the Southern Maryland region.

New for the 2018 season, the Solomons market will move to the Solomons Visitors Center, located at 14175 S. Solomons Island Road. The Solomons market will be held on Sundays, June 3 through Sept. 9, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

For more information on becoming a vendor or to learn about Calvert County’s agricultural community, visit www.calvertag.com or contact Agricultural Development Specialist Jennifer Pettko with the Calvert County Department of Economic Development, at 410-535-4583 or jennifer.pettko@calvertcountymd.gov.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
