Welcome to the Takoma Park Farmers Market

Open Sundays, year-round from 10am-2pm on Laurel Avenue

Join us every Sunday on Laurel Avenue in the lovely historic business district of Takoma Park. You’ll find the freshest local, seasonal produce, breads, pasture raised meats, artisan cheese, eggs, baked goods and more from farms located within 125 miles of Takoma Park, MD. Each week, the market is a lively meeting place for residents and visitors. Street performers often set up along the sidewalks and non-profits share info at the Community Corner creating an enjoyable backdrop to market activities.

Winter Market – We are open all winter!  While some of our vendors take a break for the winter, we welcome vendors Max Degrees, Keswick Creamery and Belle’s Acres through mid-April 2017.

2017 Summer Market Kick Off is Sunday, April 16th, from 10:00am-2:00pm

Join us to celebrate the kick off of the summer season and celebrate the return of some of our vendors.

We love Maryland Beer and Wine!

Reuseable Shopping Bags/ Takoma Park Plastic Bag Ban

 

Be sure to bring your reuseable shopping bags to the market or you can purchase one at the market ATM booth.  As of December 1, 2016, the City of Takoma Park has banned plastic shopping bags at the point of sale. They will continue to allow small plastic produce bags. Additionally, the City has allowed the market to phase in the ban and continue to use plastic bags until December 2017 as many of our small farmers have large stocks of bags stored on their farms. After that, the Takoma Park Farmers Market will pilot at compostable bag program with the city’s support.
