Special Message: Special Markets application deadline extended!

We're very happy to announce that our application deadline for our 2013 Special Markets has been extended to Monday, October 28. If you've been on the fence about joining us this holiday season, now's the time to take the plunge! The guidelines and application are available here.
Our Thanksgiving and Holiday Markets are fast approaching and we're looking for the best locally handcrafted products to share with our customers this season! Are you a local (within a 100-mile radius of Cheverly) artist or craftsperson, a specialty baker, a gardener? Want to sell your wares at Cheverly Community Market's Thanksgiving and Holiday Markets this November and December? Now's the time to get your application together! These two special Markets -- always the biggest of our season -- are a great way to sell your handmade wares! In past seasons, we've featured handmade jewelry, pottery, drawings, blankets, quilted goods, metal work, glassware, handspun alpaca yarn, baking gifts, wreaths, small-batch cosmetics and skincare, and many other unique, beautiful crafts and gift items in addition to an amazing lineup of our regular vendors. In fact, some of our Thanksgiving and Holiday Markets vendors have become very popular regular season vendors! Our customers are engaged and eager to spend their dollars with small, local businesses.
Our Annual Special Indoor Markets promote and celebrate our Mission of supporting fresh food from local sources, as well as encouraging local businesses and arts with additional space for craftspeople and artisans. Last year we had 45-55 vendors for each special Market -- our biggest events to date -- and we anticipate similar occupancy this holiday season. Recognized as one of the 101 Best Farmer’s Markets in America by The Dish, and earned the #1 spot in Maryland (#16 nationally) in American Farmland Trust’s I Love My Farmer’s Market contest for 2013, our Thanksgiving and Holiday markets are sure to be a big draw. If you know potential vendors, please share this message -- we're always on the lookout for new items to bring to our fantastic Cheverly customers.

Thanksgiving Market November 23 
Holiday Market December 14 

The Markets are held at the Cheverly Community Center, 6401 Forest Road in Cheverly. Both Markets run from 8:00am until noon.
