La Plata Farmers Market set to open April 6

News Release, Town of La Plata

Farmers, Food Trucks, and Everything In Between 

For over 40 years, the La Plata Farmers Market has brought in farmers and vendors all over Southern Maryland. Starting April 6, you can come be a part of this local tradition!

On Wednesdays you can get your fresh local produce, meat, honey, and eggs, and home-made baked goods, jams, jellies, and sauces…plus fresh-brewed coffee and food truck lunch, prepared on site just for you. Can’t make it on Wednesday?

Come on Saturdays for the big show. We’ll have all that food and drink, plus art, crafts, plants and flowers, and, yes, more food trucks! We’re open rain or shine, April 6th to – November 30th, behind the Charles County Courthouse.

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

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
