B&O Railroad Museum’s Farmers Market Returns for Third Year
BALTIMORE, MD – May 18, 2022 – The B&O Farmers Market will be returning this Thursday for its third year. In partnership with the Fell’s Point Farmers Market, the two parties plan to come together to provide a community centered shopping experience in the front parking lot of the B&O Railroad Museum. The farmers market will be open from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM on Thursdays from May 19th through September 29th.
Founder and on-site manager of the Fell’s Point Farmers Market, Merritt Dworkin, plans to bring a variety of vendors to the B&O Railroad Museum – some of which have been featured in Fell’s Point Farmers Market and others who will be new to the community. The market plans to serve as a one-stop shop for fresh local produce, flowers, crafts, and a variety of food and desserts.
The front lot of the museum at 901 W. Pratt Street offers free on-site parking for cars and ease of access for anyone traveling by bike or on foot. Organizers hope to attract neighbors as well as those working in nearby hospitals and surrounding apartment complexes.
