If you can’t make it to the Waverly farmers’ market on Saturday mornings, there’s another option now. The Green Spring Station farmers’ market starts Saturday (June 6) with afternoon hours.
It goes from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will run through Nov. 21. There’s plenty of parking at the market, tucked between the Green Spring Station shops and Hopkins complex at the intersection of Falls and Joppa roads in Lutherville.
I talked to organizer Marge Wildey, who said people have been calling to get into the market. So far, there are 28 vendors, including the Baltimore Dog Bakery, Hawks Hill Creamery, Three Springs Fruit Farm, Pahl’s Farm, Locust Point Flowers, Zeke’s Coffee, a mushroom stand, and Quite a Stir bakery.
Marge, who has owned The Nut Farm in Green Spring Station with her husband, Clay, for 14 years, says she visited many area farmers’ market, including one at Dupont Circle in D.C., to get an idea of what vendors to target for the new venture.
Towson resident Julie Salter of Quite a Stir thinks it’s a great location for the market, and after people shop, they can "go over to Tark’s (Grill) for happy hour," she says.
