COMMUNITY CORNER TENT

We’re now taking reservations for our Community Corner Tent for the 2015 market year.  This is a great way to introduce your nonprofit or service group to the farmers’ market shoppers.  The Community Corner can be used for membership drives, fund raising (excluding bake sales) or to hold a demonstration.  For more information, contact David : 410-251-6383 or flavordrizzles@gmail.com.

 

VOLUNTEER AT MARKET

The Friends of the Ocean Pines Farmers Market is our volunteer group.  As a volunteer you could have the opportunity to rub elbows with our farmers and learn more about local agriculture, hob-knob with the bakers for inside secrets to their best recipes or just make new friends with others interested in supporting the farmers market.  Volunteer opportunities are available at any level of commitment and hours are flexible. To find out more, you can stop by our Information booth any Saturday or contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Tracey Hofman at TraceyHofman@aol.com.

 

VENDOR OPPORTUNITIES

For more vending information, contact Market Manager David Bean at 410-251-6383 or flavordrizzles@gmail.com

 

 

SEEKING MUSICIANS

The farmers market is seeking musicians to provide background music for our visitors as they shop the market.  Musicians provide casual performances at random assigned locations throughout the market.  Performers can open up their case for tips! If you are a musician who would like to share your music with others.

 

 


COMING SOON! – The Bazaar is coming to your Ocean Pines Farmers Market.  This new section of the market will aim to provide shoppers with a variety of unique resale goods and collectible items including jewelry, collectible housewares, antiques, shabby chic furniture, sports memorabilia and more.  For Bazaar vending information contact Market Manager David Bean at 410-251-6383 or flavordrizzles@gmail.com.
