Who's in Your Micro-Economy? #2


The beginning of spring and gardening season...my favorite part of the year! I love watching the seeds I plant grow, but, until they are edible, I have to get my veggies elsewhere!!!

So, in continuing with promoting and expanding Baltimore's micro economy...I have posted a list of the local farmers markets in our area.

Do you have a favorite farmers market?
A favorite vendor at the farmers market?
Did I forget a good one?!
Photos, stories, or advice you'd like to share? I'd love to post it here!!!
