The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts is proud to present the 41th Annual Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar
and is now accepting submissions for the 2018 Market season.
The Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar is a producer only market.
Farmers chosen for the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar, are
chosen for their commitment to the Baltimore regional community with
growing and raising fine products, and keeping the Maryland farming
heritage alive. They are producers and growers, not re-sellers.
BFMB supports the Maryland Money Market Program, SNAP, WIC, and Senior
programs, and we hope for your participation in these important
programs. For more information, please contact the Maryland Farmers
Market Association <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
