From Harford County government:
With the opening of the farmers’ markets in Havre de Grace on May 7 and Edgewood on May 12, all four of Harford County’s Farmers’ Markets will be open for the 2011 season. The Bel Air Farmers’ Markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays opened in April.
During the month of May, farmers’ market patrons will find fresh strawberries and early-season vegetables such as asparagus, peas, and spinach, as well hanging baskets and bedding plants. Most markets will also have a variety of meats, cheeses, ice cream, honey, and other specialty items to offer.
“The popularity of Harford County Farmers’ Markets and our ‘Buy Local’ campaign have grown by leaps and bounds,” stated County Executive David R. Craig. “I enjoy walking to the Havre de Grace market from my home as often as I can, but all four of our farmers’ markets are worth the trip wherever you are travelling from.”
The Havre de Grace Farmers’ Market will be open every Saturday from 9am to Noon beginning May 7 at its location downtown on Pennington Avenue. The Edgewood Farmers’ Market will be open every Thursday from 3pm to 6pm beginning May 12 at the Edgewood MARC Train Station, 2122 Old Edgewood Road.
