Embracing a Community in Need, Kids and Families at the August 3rd Mount Airy Main Street Farmers’ Market
This Wednesday, August 3rd, we are changing our plans a little at the Mount Airy Main Street Farmers' Market. We are reaching out to you - the Greater Mount Airy Community – to ask you to come together at the Mount Airy Main Street Farmers’ Market in support of our neighboring Main Street community in Ellicott City. We’re collecting non-parishable food items and essentials for the victims, monetary donations and more to be passed directly to the victims through the designated organizations entrusted with assisting the businesses and people effected and/or displaced by the flooding.
In addition, while you are buying local and eating fresh this Wednesday at the August 3rd market, also designated as our kids and family day, you will be able to listen to some beautiful acoustic music performed by Ellicott City’s Mother-Daughter Duo, Bittersweet Girls – Lisa and Sadie Roussell.
We are also welcoming a new guest vendor, local We Just Clicked photographer, David Butterfield, who will be happy to take your photo with your favorite farmer and/or fruits and vegetables in preparation and celebration of next week’s Maryland Farmers’ Market Week. David will have a stand selling his prints and postcards.

In addition to all Mount Airy’s Main Street has to offer, we are fortunate to have several insurance agencies in close proximity. The town is home to several insurance agencies including: Browning Reagle Insurance Agency (Erie Insurance) and Cheryl A. Cates Insurance Agency (State Farm Insurance).
