Easton Farmers Market
Update: Opening Day - April 11
When: Every Saturday, RAIN OR SHINE, April through December, 8:00am-1:00pm
Where: 28712 Glebe Road, Easton, MD
Given the uneven availability of fresh produce in stores and the many farmers who have had their businesses interrupted, the Avalon Foundation is committed to continuing our farmers market. In conjunction with the Talbot County Office of Economic Development and Tourism, we have developed a plan to reimagine the Easton Farmers Market as a 100% drive-through market that complies with CDC guidelines. If all goes as planned, every Saturday, beginning on April 11, the market will be held from 8 am to 1 pm in the large parking lot behind the Talbot County Business Center (formally the Black & Decker plant). You will be able to drive up to the various vendors, make your selections, pay, and receive your order through your vehicle window. Some vendors also have the ability to pre-order and pre-pay for items to expedite your purchase.
Watch the Avalon Foundation website and Facebook for additional details and instructions in the coming week.
As one of the earliest settled areas of the United States, the Delmarva Peninsula - including Talbot County and the town of Easton - has a long and proud history of self-sustainment. The rich farmland and extensive waterways have sustained our economy and provided a way of life for generations of Eastern Shore residents. In addition, modern consumers are showing an increasing demand for more locally-grown, farm to table food goods.
The mission of the Easton Farmers Market is to provide a marketplace for farmers and vendors to sustain their local operations, while at the same time offering consumers a venue that fills their whole plate with local produce. From local produce growers to watermen and seafood distributors, from bakers to ranchers and local artisans, the Easton Farmers Market provides an entire meal and home decor in a friendly and festive environment.
