Govanstowne Farmers Market
Wednesdays // 5104 York Road // 3-6pm
One of the best things about our market is the sense of community we create on our market parking lot each week.  Together we gather to #GrowCommunity.  As we emerge from the pandemic, seeing our neighbors has been one of the most joyful experiences. 

We're grateful for community leaders like 4th District Councilman Mark Conway, local York Road Partnership leaders, and Community Schools leaders and staff like local Principals who give of their time (and often money) to support the growth of the market and our community.   We hope you'll join us. 

See you at market!
Marie, GFM Market Manager
