It may be hot out there, but the crops are growing and more farmers’ markets are popping up this week. If you’re in the Towson area, stop by the new outdoor market at the Shops at Kenilworth this evening. Ned Atwater, owner of Atwater’s, has brought together an assortment of farmers he met when he was baking bread and taking it to farmers’ market, pre his restaurant days.
The market on the mall parking lot provides meats, cheeses, vegetables, fresh flowers, and more from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays. Sounds perfect for picking up fresh stuff for dinner.
On Saturday, the new Harbor East FreshFarm Market showcases the products of area farmers from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. along the 1000 block of Lancaster Street between South Exeter Street and Central Avenue. Garage and street parking are easily available.
Back in Towson, the Towson Farmers’ Market sets up its numerous stands on Allegheny Avenue from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., starting this Thursday. This year, it’s also adding Saturday hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot at the corner of Allegheny and Washington Avenues.
I know there are a lot more markets out there. If you have a favorite, I’d love to hear about it.
