Spring Baltimore Farmers Markets for 2021

baltimore farmers markets for 2021

Spring Baltimore farmers markets for 2021 are opening soon! The first of them open in March, then those listed here will all open in April at some point.

The map above shows the markets that will be opening in April in green, with the year round markets in blue. Hopefully a market near you will be open soon!

The rest of the Baltimore farmers markets for 2021 will be opening in May and June. Though the list below hasn’t changed much from 2020, one now has a winter market, and one is only virtual this year thanks to COVID.

The early spring farmers markets may not be well attended, and some vendors may not show up until later. Likely you won’t find a lot of fresh produce, but as with the year round markets, there will definitely be some great local products to find.

This is a great time of the year to start looking forward to warmer weather, and a great time to talk with farmers since they likely won’t be too busy. However, if you want fresh produce, get there when they open so you don’t miss out!

Spring Food Markets

These aren’t like the Baltimore farmers markets where the producers are selling directly to you. Rather, they are a middleman that buys local foods and sells them to you.

They are seasonal, like the farmers markets, and a great resource for local foods! They don’t list their opening dates, but historically have opened in April.

Farmer Stan’s Plants and Produce opens sometime in April each year (check their website for more details), and are open daily. They are located in Upperco.

Diehl’s Produce is my local market! They are located in Severna Park, and are open all week long. They’ve been operating for nearly 50 years. Not all their food is local, but it is labeled with where it comes from. You can find plants, fresh produce, and other goodies. They open in early April, check their site for updated information!

Peninsula Farms is located in Edgewater, and opens early in April. They are candid on their site that Facebook is not their thing, and offer a phone number if you have any questions!

The opening of the spring farmers markets is always a special time. Visiting them means spring has arrived, and seasonal eating can really begin. Go support your local farmers!
