 HOLIDAY MARKETS

 

Beautiful holiday wreaths from Hasting Farms are back at your Ocean Pines Farmers Market for another wonderful Christmas season.  The Hasting’s use fresh naturally grown greens harvested from the woodlands of their Worcester County Farm to hand made holiday wreaths.  It’s the most

wonderful time of year at your Ocean Pines Farmers Market!

 

Make the season bright with local made tapered beeswax candles from Longridge Gardens.  The handcrafted 100% beeswax candles are long burning, and when lite give off the sweet natural aroma of the honey. Pair the candles with a seasonal floral arrangement by Terry for your home or give “Deans Handcrafted with Nature” candles as a lovely hostess gift.

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, and to reserve your date; contact Market Manager David Bean at 410-251-6383 or at 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.
