Presented by the Friends of Druid Hill Park, H.P. Rawlings Conservatory & Botanic Gardens and the Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks.

Fresh, local produce is returning to Druid Hill Park for the third market season! The Druid Hill Farmers’ Market kicks off on June 5th, from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., with many free activities. The market is located at 3100 Swann Drive, in front of the Howard P. Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens, and the season runs every Wednesday from June 5th – September 25th, 2013.

Farmers will be selling their produce, herbs, baked goods, bedding plants, and free-range eggs and meats alongside crafters and artisans offering hand-made art objects. The extensive schedule of free programming, amenities of the Rawlings Conservatory, and park attractions make the Druid Hill Farmers’ market the place to visit with family, friends, and community members this summer.

The Druid Hill Farmers’ Market will feature art and gardening workshops, children’s crafts and story time, tree tours with the City Naturalist, weekly music, and more. The Rawlings Conservatory will be staying open until 7 p.m. on market nights, so market-goers may enjoy the diverse plant material native to ecosystems from around the world in Baltimore’s own 125 year old, Victorian glass house.

The Druid Hill Farmers’ Market will be accepting SNAP cards and credit cards. Most of the produce vendors accept WIC Fruit and Vegetable checks and Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program vouchers for seniors and WIC participants.

“The mission of the Friends of Druid Hill Park is to protect and maintain its magnificent woods and arbors, to preserve its historic monuments and buildings, and to reinvigorate the park as a central recreational, cultural and educational institution.”
