I experienced the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar for the first time last Sunday – and it IS an experience! I can’t believe it has taken me so long but, believe me, I’ll be back. Strolling through the throngs of visitors and vendors under the JFX, all of my senses were on overload!
Before we even got inside the perimeter, savory smells of cooking food wafted out drew us in. Hot coffee and fresh squeezed lemonade were the first vendors I saw. The smell of fresh baked sweets pulled us around the corner to begin our tour.
Go ahead and take a minute to wipe the drool sliding down your chin.
Fabulous root vegetables are everywhere…
eggplant, and green beans are on display.
And many in come in a variety of colors!
It was a perfect pairing with the fresh pesto and gorgonzola gnocchi I bought that were sold along with stuffed ravioli.
There were even vendors with live soft shelled crabs and fresh fish.
Fresh cut flowers, potted flowers, and vegetables plants ready are scattered throughout the market ready for a home in your garden.
I hope this little tour of the farmers market entices you to find a market near you and BUY LOCAL!!!
