Carroll County Farmers Market Opening Day, June 15
Dolores and I always enjoy trips the Carroll County Farmers Market in Westminster, Maryland. This Saturday, June 15, 2013, is the official opening day of the market for the 42nd summer season. The location is on Agriculture Drive and the market will be open each Saturday through September 7. The hours are from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This Saturday, they will be offering a free drawing for a basket filled with grilling accessories and two Orioles baseball tickets for Father’s Day. This week’s demonstration is “Pet Portraits” by Diane Bauer. The Summer Market offers a variety of fruits and vegetables, agricultural products and handmade crafts. By the way, this is the oldest market in Carroll County.
Master Gardeners will be available to answer your questions and to provide helpful gardening tips.
My favorite stands are the ones that offer baked goods. We love the fruit pies. Dolores slices the pies and then freezes the slices for future desserts. Dolores always checks the handmade jewelry items. This is a great place to shop for gift items.
The cafeteria is open during market hours for breakfast and lunch.
