We are looking for market vendors of produce, prepared foods, value added foods and a limited number of crafts to sell at the market this season. Click here to download application and market rules.
We will open on June 3 and be open 11 – 2 on Saturdays until September 2.
The market will again be located at 4521 Kenilworth Avenue, in Bladensburg, Md. This is in the locally popular Three Brothers Plaza shopping center along a busy roadway. Thanks to Mario Repole of Three Brothers Italian Restaurant for allowing us to locate there and provide better fresh food access to the residents of the Port Towns and Prince George’s County!
You’ll be able meet local farmers, support local food businesses, get your fresh, local produce and tasty foods, hear live music, and fun for kids. We also plan to have cooking demonstrations.
Market vendors will take WIC and Farmers Market Fruit and Vegetable Checks and customers can use SNAP/EBT to buy SNAP-eligible foods. And once again, the market has Maryland Market Money Double Dollars which will double any WIC or SNAP purchase up to $5 per week thanks to funding from the Town of Edmonston, Md. and the Maryland Farmers Market Association.
