From Druid Hill to Fells Point, shop seasonal produce and hand-crafted goods all across the Baltimore area!
Farmers' markets are our favorite part of spring and summer. Not only are they a great place to purchase in-season produce (hello, fresh strawberries), but they also help the community flourish. Bring family and friends to browse hand-crafted goods, enjoy tasty foods, and support local businesses in this great city!
Here are the top five farmer's markets in Baltimore.
