ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY FARMERS’ MARKETS OPENING FOR THE SEASON
ANNAPOLIS, MD (March 15, 2012) - - - Anne Arundel County Farmers’ Markets are opening for the season. The Westfield Annapolis Winter Market remains open on the first and third Sunday through the end of April. The Riva market will kick off their growing season by opening on Saturday, April 7th from 7 AM to Noon.
The Westfield Annapolis Winter Market will remain open the first and third Sunday from 10am to 2pm through April 29th. Beginning May 6 the market will be open every Sunday through October 28th. The Westfield market recently moved to a new location, located in the Orange parking garage next to Macy’s. The market will remain in that location during the spring and summer months. The move has allowed the market to expand vendors and keep temperatures cooler for both produce and customers in the hot summer months. Customers can expect to find a wide variety of locally produced agricultural products at the Westfield market including, organic greens and seasonal produce, milk, yogurt, cheese, beef, pork, chicken, eggs, baked goods, jams, jewelry and much more.
The Riva market opens for the season on Saturday, April 7th from 7am - Noon at the corner of Harry S. Truman Parkway and Riva Road. In June the Riva market will also be open on Tuesdays from 7am – Noon.
The Westfield and Riva Road Farmers’ Markets are the first of 6 markets to open in Anne Arundel County this year. On opening day, the Riva market expects to see well over 500 visitors and will offer early season bedding plants, potted plants, hanging baskets, herbs, spring vegetables, baked goods, jams, jellies, cut flowers, flavored vinegars, fresh eggs, soaps and many other specialty items.
Anne Arundel Count Farmers’ Markets are producer only markets, featuring locally grown seasonal produce. As the season progresses a much wider variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and plants will be available.
