Impromptu Mini Farmers Market on Feb. 20

Apples and pears at the impromptu farmers market in Rockville in January.

Winter is rarely a time for a farmers market but a couple of farms have returned to the corner of Jefferson and Monroe in downtown Rockville on Saturday morning to share the produce they have available, such as apples and squash held over from fall or young root crops, such as beets or carrots, that are growing in greenhouses.  On January 9, a couple farmers arrived with little notice and yet most of their produce was gone by noon.  This Saturday, February 13 was planned for another informal market but I was just notified it will be postponed to next Saturday, February 20 due to the cold weather.  I’ll post an update if there’s a change in plans. If you’re looking for a larger winter market, visit the Olney Farmers and Artists Market on Sunday mornings.

    What time does market start on the 20th?

    1. I suspect it’ll be 9 am to noon as usual, and that’s what they did in January.
