Anne Arundel County Farmers' Market Opens at The Centre at Glen Burnie

ANNAPOLIS, MD (July 5, 2007) - Anne Arundel County's newest farmers' market opens Wednesday, July 11th at the Centre at Glen Burnie. The market will be open from 10:00a.m. - 1:00p.m. every Wednesday through September 26th and will be located in the parking area next to the main entrance of the Centre (6711 Ritchie Highway.)

"I am happy to see more locations for farmers' markets in Anne Arundel County," said Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold. "The Centre at Glen Burnie is a great location for our farmers to offer fresh produce to Northern Anne Arundel County residents."

As the demand for local produce continues to increase, farmers' markets are becoming popular sites for purchasing locally grown produce. Locally grown produce is fresh, more nutritious, and is more flavorful than produce that has been grown elsewhere and shipped. The Farmers' Market at the Centre at Glen Burnie will feature a variety of locally grown plants, hanging baskets, herbs, summer vegetables, baked goods, jams, jellies and cut flowers.

The Farmers' Market at the Centre at Glen Burnie is a partnership between Anne Arundel County Economic Development Corporation (AAEDC) and Petrie Ross Ventures (c).

Phillip Ross, President of Petrie Ross Ventures said "I am delighted to add the Anne Arundel County Farmers' Market to the retail choices at the Centre at Glen Burnie." "We are pleased to partner with Anne Arundel County to provide a more dynamic shopping experience."
