Farmer's Markets are fantastic opportunities to save money and live healthier.  Generally, the fruits and vegetables from a farmer's market come straight from the source.  There's no mega-corporation middle man adding extraneous costs to your produce and, on average, the fruits and veggies at a farmer's market are far more fresh than those of a grocery store.  Think about it, would you rather have a peach picked fresh from the tree, say, 2 days ago, or one that's traveled across the land in a freight truck, sat in a stock room, and finally shelved in a 5-6 day process?

It's all about locality.  The 32nd Street Farmer's Market knows this and has been doing it right for over 30 years in Baltimore.   Bringing in farmers and vendors from surrounding areas to sell their goods, the 32nd Street Farmer's Market is a non-profit organization specializing in produce, baked goods, prepared food, meats and more for Baltimore residents and visitors alike.

Snag some fresh, organic bread, or maybe a pastry or twelve before checking out all the fruit and produce available by season.  In the Fall and Winter months shop from a wide variety of fresh-grown goodness ranging from apples to pears, beats, broccoli, onions and much more.  Warmer months lend themselves to a little more variety with a ton of fruit including deep red cherries, nectarines, peaches, and strawberries.

32nd Street Market even boasts as EBT machine so this with SNAP (formerly food stamp) cards as well as debit or credit cards can utilize them when shopping at the market.  Just swipe your card, pay a small fee, and you'll get tokens accepted as payment with all vendors at the market.

Baltimore's 32nd Street Market is open every Saturday year-round from 7 a.m. till noon.
