Available Now at Participating Markets and Regional Libraries
News Release, Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission
Hughesville, MD- The Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission (SMADC) has released the 2019 Southern Maryland Farmers’ Market Guide, available now at participating markets, regional libraries and other public venues around the region while stocks last.
The 8-page brochure (published every spring) lists 31 farmers markets in Southern Maryland, as well as 10 regional markets in the Metro DC area that carry Southern Maryland farm products.
Featured farmers’ markets offer a wide selection of locally raised produce and value-added farm products including meats and seafood, farm-made pickles and jams, local honey, eggs, plants and flowers and dairy products. Many markets now host vendors of locally produced wine, beer and distilled spirits.
A fold-out market locator map makes it easy to find a market by county, and listings provide additional ‘need to know’ details – seasonal openings and closings, days/hours of operation, street locations/addresses, as well as the market websites and other social media links to find out more.
Coming soon, look for information about how to support Maryland’s farms during Buy Local Challenge Week (July 20 – 28) and at Southern Maryland’s 3rd Annual Buy Local Challenge Celebration of farms, food and farm fun on July 29th, a public event hosted at Spider Hall Farm in Prince Frederick. For more information, visit the Buy Local Challenge website at www.buylocalchallenge.com.
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 email@example.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
