OLD TOWN NORTH CANAL DISTRICT
MONTGOMERY PARK PARKING LOT
901 North Royal Street
Farmers' Market Hours: 3:00-7:00pm
Did you know… Farmers Markets preserve farmland and support rural livelihoods? The Old Town North Farmers’ Market is committed to supporting local family farms. This year we implemented a growers own policy at the market asking that our farmers sell only what they grow rather than buying from wholesalers. We are also encouraging our farmers to follow sustainable practices.
The Temperature is expected to be quite high, so be sure to drink lots of water when you come out to the Market!
The CDC Guidelines now allow fully vaccinated residents to go about their business without masks but we ask that shoppers, vendors and staff who have not been fully vaccinated continue to wear masks at the market.
Many thanks to all our friends and neighbors for your continued support of our local, small businesses and the Old Town North Community Partnership.
Free Yoga in the Fresh Air is on for Thursday, July 22nd, 5:00-6:00pm
Bring a mat and join us in the Park!
All are Welcome!
Shop local, shop happy!
