Did you know? Microgreens are nutritious. Microgreens are packed with nutrients.While their nutrient contents vary slightly, most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper. Microgreens are also a great source of beneficial plant compounds like antioxidants. What’s more, their nutrient content is concentrated, which means that they often contain higher vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels than the same quantity of mature greens. In fact, research comparing microgreens to more mature greens reports that nutrient levels in microgreens can be up to nine times higher than those found in mature greens. Research also shows that they contain a wider variety of polyphenols and other antioxidants than their mature counterparts. Learn more by reading this article, Microgreens: All You Ever Wanted to Know.
COVID 19 Updates: Our patrons may still place preorders for pick-up at the market during 2021. While the statewide mandates set by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to mitigate COVID-19 have been relaxed and lifted, and as of July 1st, they will be further lifted, we request that everyone entering the market show respect for our community. Our patrons, vendors and farmers' market team appreciate it.
We encourage social distancing, and hand washing/sanitation while on-site at the market. Our vendors who are serving samples and prepared food will still wear masks to protect the public; however, we leave the choice to you to mask up. Patience is appreciated as we navigate health and safety practices as we recover from uncertain times. As Spock would say, "Live Long and Prosper." That's what we want for you, so come Buy Local and Eat Fresh and Healthy, and spend time outside with us at the 2021 Mount Airy Main Street Farmers' Market!
