Govanstowne Farmers Market
Wednesdays // 5104 York Road // 3-6pm
It's the day we've been waiting for!  Help us celebrate the opening of our 10th season along the York Road corridor in Govans. 

We're so grateful to our customers and vendors.  To celebrate, the first 100 customers will receive $10 in free market tokens to use with any vendor at market. 

We can't wait to see you on the lot!

In community,
Marie, GFM Market Manager
Partnering with Whole Foods to Nourish our Neighborhood
We take pride in the fact that we are among the top three farmers markets in the City of Baltimore for SNAP redemption at market.  Every year we offer +$10 Bonus Bucks towards the purchase of fresh, whole foods for customers who utilize SNAP/EBT and FMNP coupons. 

This season, Maryland Market Money has partnered with Whole Foods Market to nourish neighborhoods in Baltimore. Not only has Whole Foods Market offered the MMM program vital support, but they've elected to provide SNAP/EBT shoppers at three Baltimore City farmers markets with a Whole Foods Market $10 ‘It’s On Us’ coupon card, to be used at Whole Foods Market Stores in Baltimore. Combined with foods purchased at the farmers market, the 'It’s On Us' card will help shoppers prepare nourishing meals and create a home pantry that they can continue to use. 

SNAP/EBT shoppers can get their 'It's On Us' card TODAY when they use their SNAP/EBT card at Govans Farmers Market! 

Please note: card supplies are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis each month. Limit one card per SNAP/EBT shopper per distribution day.
First Wednesday Live Music: Superior Cling
We've been missing hosting events!  This summer we're striving for safe, socially distanced  special market days.  The first Wednesday of each month this summer we'll host live music from Baltimore artists. 

This week we have Superior Cling, a jazz trio that plays a versatile mix of standards and originals.  They've been making the farmers market circuit and have also played at Waverly/32nd Street Market and Cross Street.  We're excited to welcome them to our market! You can find more of their music on Bandcamp

Share this flyer with your friends and neighbors on social media and give them a follow on Facebook
If you know a local band, DJ, or musician who would be interested in playing at market, please e-mail govansmarket@gmail.com.  We offer musicians a small stipend (and a frosty lemonade) for their time.
