We’re delighted to announce that starting 2016, our Farmers Market location will be at 2308-2312 Annapolis Road. The empty lots belong to New Jerusalem Deliverance Temple and are adjacent to their church building. We reached out to the leadership earlier this month and they kindly accepted to let us run the farmers market there on Wednesday evenings.
Proximity to the Light Rail
The new location is two blocks away from the Westport Light Rail station. Folks can walk along Kent St. toward Annapolis Rd. Also, there are ADA accessible ramps.
Proximity to bus stop
The new location is less than 50 ft from the Route 51 Local Bus which services Ashburton, Mondawmin, West Baltimore, Carroll Park, Westport, Cherry Hill and Lakeland. To view the schedule, http://mta.maryland.gov/local-bus. To view the map of the route, click here.
During market days, we ask that all patrons park along Annapolis Rd. As we near opening day, we will provide a map with suggested areas to park.
This sunnier and emptier spot will allow us to enjoy the market without being bitten by our overzealous mosquitoes, which will mean a better market experience.
Our market will be better lit for our evening market hours (6-8:30p.m.). Although we will miss our shadier park spot from last year, the visibility along Annapolis Road adds a benefit of safety and accessibility. We will continue to use our string lighting for improved lighting. Our biggest challenge last year, was lack of patron parking along Waterview Avenue.
Save the Date and spread the word!
Now that we’ve confirmed our location, Save the Date and invite your neighbors to our opening day of June 22, 2016. We’ll be hosting a free raffle of veggie/goodie bag for market attendees.
