Baltimore's newest Farmer's Market opens in Greenmount West
BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- Baltimore’s newest weekly farmer’s market is now open for business in the city’s Greenmount neighborhood.
The Greenmount West Community Market, or “Grow Market,” will take place every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Open Works parking lot on Greenmount Avenue and E. Hoffman Street.
"Beyond shopping the Market, live entertainment, fitness and cooking demonstrations, and interactive and engaging family fun will be happening all summer long," said April Lewis, Open Works' Membership Manager.
Customers will find an array of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, breads, and coffee, as well as work from local artists and vendors. Selected vendors were based on a survey community members completed on what they wanted to see at the market, as well as which day.
"Greenmount West is a thriving neighborhood that offers access to arts, a locally-owned cafe and roastery, entertainment, industrial fabrication equipment and tools, and affordable housing, but we know that residents need and want more," said Sache Jones, Co-founder, Two Moons Food Group.
"Through Grow Market, we will create a people-centered bustling local marketplace that connects farmers, producers, makers, artists and residents to one another for the mutual benefit of supporting small businesses and promoting community wellness and enhanced quality of life," added Myeasha Taylor, Two Moons Co-founder. We are excited to collaborate with our neighbors across Central Baltimore to bring the goods and services we all need and want."
The farmer’s market will be hosted by Two Moons Food Group and Open Works.
