The Fells Point Farmers’ Market, a rite of spring in East Baltimore, is usually held in Broadway Square, at the foot of Broadway.
But because the public square is closed for renovations this year, the farmers’ market is moving to a temporary location near the Harbor Point redevelopment area.
Representatives of the market and Harbor Point’s master developer, Beatty Development, announced today that the farmers’ market will start its seventh season on Saturday, May 6, and will operate every Saturday through Nov. 18, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The temporary location is the parking lot at 950 S. Caroline Street. Organizers say the format will be the same as in previous years, with more than 40 vendors selling a variety of prepared food and handmade crafts. Items will include local produce, fruits, flowers, eggs, meats, cheeses, jams and honey.
“We’re really excited to be able to keep the Farmers Market going this year,” said manager Merritt Dworkin in a statement. “While we obviously can’t wait to return home to Broadway Square, we’re so thankful to Beatty Development’s help and generosity in providing us with a large, easily accessible space that we think both our vendors and patrons are going to love.”
