(6/1) Emmitsburg will be welcoming back their annual Farmers Market this June. The market will open on June 19th and will run every Friday through September 25th.
This is the town’s 12th time hosting the Farmers Market. The town first hosted the market back in June 2004. The idea to sponsor the market came with the town’s effort to improve the quality of life in Emmitsburg. Town Parking Enforcement leader, Amy Naill, recalls that when the market first began it was located closer to the square. In the
past the vendors have sold items such as fresh bread, fresh produce, flowers, meats, cheese, homemade goods and other homemade items.
This year the market is located on the northbound side of South Seton Avenue just before the Town office and the Firemen’s Museum. The area where the market is set up features enough area for ten vendors to set up.
The market will be open every Friday from 3pm to 6:30. Currently, the market has six vendors signed up. There are still spots open. Naill is still accepting applicants for the market.
From those six vendors the market will be offering produce, honey, crafts, and much more. The market is free to those who wish to participate. Vendors must sign a contract but are not asked to pay a fee. The town does ask that what the vendors sell must be produced by them. Naill noted that the process of getting vendors has been slower
this year. Many of the participants who have set up in the past are getting older and are not interested in setting up this year. She hopes to be able to fill the remaining spots
