OCEAN PINES, MD – Following the success of its second spring and summer season, the Ocean Pines Farmers Market will, for the first time, operate through the fall and winter. It is the only area fall and winter farmers market scheduled to be open on Saturday mornings.
The addition comes at the request of customers and vendors with products suited to the change in seasons. New and current market vendors will be offering fresh produce, breads, home-made items, flowers and more.
Originally scheduled to run through the month of October, the fall and winter market will run from the first Saturday of November 2013 through the last Saturday of April 2104. It will continue be held on Saturdays from 8 am to 12 noon at White Horse Park, located at 239 Ocean Parkway in Ocean Pines.
The Ocean Pines Farmers Market supports family-based farming, farmers, and food producers of the Eastern Shore. Cutting out the middleman has allowed for direct contact and feedback between customers and producers, giving area residents an opportunity to ask questions and gain knowledge about the food they eat. Vendor Applications are now being accepted. Visit www.oceanpines.org for application or call 410-641-7717 ext 3006.
