The Govanstowne Famer’s Market was created in 2011 in an effort to bring fresh produce and business to an area in great need of it – the York Road Corridor. The market, which is sponsored by Loyola University Maryland, the York Road Partnership, and the Govanstowne Business Association, seeks to provide the York Road Community of North Baltimore with produce that is affordable, fresh, and local. By accepting benefits from federal, state, and local programs, the market is able to accommodate the needs of the York Road community. In the past two years, this market has been so successful that it has even been chosen by the United Way in researching food access in low income areas. The farmer’s market has produce vendors that sell anything from fresh desserts to savory barbecue. They even have a vendor that sells Thai and Vietnamese goods! The market also hosts various vendors to accommodate your crafting needs. Make sure you head down on Wednesdays for some good food and to support a great cause.
