Friday Message from the Market Manager -- What's in Store?

This may go down as one of our most community-oriented markets ever...there's so much in store that we can hardly wait until tomorrow morning! Market Manager Barbara Liston and Cathy Wintermyer have the rundown for you... "Our market is very proud of the fact that we were the first farmer's market in Maryland to feature local wine. Now approaching our fifth year, Elk Run Winery and Bob and Susan Cecil have been with us from the beginning, starting with our very first Thanksgiving Market in 2007. They have a full complement of their award-winning wine for every palate and are anxious to share it with you. Also some very glam T-shirts for the wine aficionado at your house. Make sure you Friend us on Facebook and tweet about what wonderful things you see at the Market, including Charles & Kelly, who will be playing for us again this Saturday. "Now along with wine, there must be cheese, right? Well we are pleased to announce the return of Eve's Cheese from the beautiful Eastern Shore.
