Fresh produce, flowers, baked goods, crafts and more can be found weekly at one of the six Farmers Markets located in The City of Frederick. Residents and visitors can find a variety of local and homegrown goodies. Treat yourself, buy local, and enjoy one more reason to call Frederick home.
“We are very excited by the variety and number of farmers markets that are available to Frederick residents. Farmers markets provide the community access to healthy, local products grown in the region. Because the produce does not have to travel as far to market, it remains fresher and more environmentally friendly. There is a local economic benefit to farmers markets — access to fresh locally harvested produce keeps dollars in the Frederick economy. This summer, I challenge our local residents to eat at least one locally grown product per day during this summer season,” said Mayor Randy McClement.
