St. Michaels Farmers Market celebrates 20 yearsName: St. Michaels Farmers Market celebrates 20 yearsDate: June 30, 2018Time: 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM EDTEvent Description:On Saturday, June 30th from 8:30 to 11:30am, the St. Michaels Farmers Market invites everyone to come on over to 204 S. Talbot St. in St. Michaels to join them in celebrating their 20th year of offering fresh, healthy, delicious items from regional farms and local producers to the Bay Hundred community.
The Market will be a busier-than-usual beehive of activity for its 20th birthday with free tastings from guest chefs, including longtime Talbot County resident, Michael Rork; “birthday cake” from Arlene’s Creations; ice cream donated by Justine’s; and a raffle of market baskets full of tasty items donated by vendors.
As always, customers, families and friends are invited to come together to not only shop but also celebrate summer and yummy foods. On the special Market birthday, customers will be treated to music by Cambridge-based band, Blackwater, who will offer their unique repertoire of rock, blues, reggae and bluegrass. With an ever expanding array of original songs, and their own versions of not-so-familiar covers, something new is always on the playlist!
The new leadership for the Market has grown it in several new directions this year. It’s ‘producer-only’ focus—meaning everything sold at the market is grown or produced by the person selling it—makes the St. Michaels Farmers Market a unique asset for the mid-Shore community. This year, they have expanded to include an adjacent lot, allowing for several new vendors, and have made the Market SNAP-friendly so that more people and community can purchase the fresh healthy meats, vegetables and other goods available.
