Charles County Kicks Off 2018 Farmersí Market Season

Posted by: Economic Development Team on Friday, April 27, 2018

Charles County’s farmers’ markets are back for the 2018 season! Find locally produced offerings all season long at any of the three farmers’ markets in Charles County. The Town of La Plata and Waldorf farmers markets are back again, and the Town of Indian Head is launching their new market! These local farmers’ markets offer a range of local goodies including: fresh fruits, vegetables, jams and jellies, honey, home-baked goods, and much more.

Why Shop at the Farmers’ Market?

Charles County’s rich agriculture industry includes 382 farms across 46,000 acres and provides a plethora of fresh and diverse produce from our region. Additionally, buying from your local community supports farmers, bakers, and crafters, which in turn allows them to provide Charles County with fresh, sustainable, and local products!

Pro Tip: To find out which markets have the produce you’re hungry for, check out our Farmers’ Markets 2018 rack card.
