LA PLATA FARMS MARKET- SHOP LOCAL/FRESH

05/08/2019 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

LA PLATA FARMS MARKET- SHOP LOCAL/FRESH

Date: Wednesdays and Saturdays April – November

  • 8-6 pm pm Wednesdays
  • 8-3 on Saturdays
Location: Courthouse Parking Lot, La Plata, MD
Details: The La Plata Farmers Market is a great way to shop locally. You will find local and family owned farms and businesses selling: produce, meat, eggs, homemade goodies, plants & flowers.  My favorite parts of the farmers market are grabbing fresh cup of coffee from Wee Bean Roasting Company and meat from Hancock Family Farms. Touring the market with littles is a wonderful idea; research shows that kids who shop or help cook their food are more likely to try new things.
