This event series has ended
The Downtown College Park Farmers Market started in 2010 as an effort to increase access to fresh produce in the heart of the City for both residents and students at the University of Maryland. The market is entering its fourth year of operation and each season has seen an increase in both customers and vendors. The market emphasizes locally-grown fruit and vegetables as all produce must be from within a 150-mile radius of the market.
The market is open on Sundays from 10:00am to 2:00pm during the season, which runs from April 27th to November 23rd this year.
In addition to a diverse set of vendors, the market features weekly events such as chef demos, children's events, and educational booths.
The market takes place in the City Hall Parking Lot at 4500 Knox Road. Free parking is available on Sundays, including the downtown parking garage on the corner of Knox Road and Yale Avenue.
The market is sponsored in a combined effort by the City of College Park and the Downtown College Park Management Authority. In order to support the Downtown merchants and the keep the neighborhood thriving please stop by their shops before and after the market.
