"While the wind chased the leaves outside, Passion found a place to hide. Late September heat, Couldn't be denied.
Oh Indian Summer, The wonder, The hunger, And the sound of distant thunder. Indian Summer."
~ Indian Summer by Brooks & Dunn

Did you know? According to Epicurious' A Visual Guide to Winter Squash Varieties, there are 12 main types of Winter Squash. The term winter squash is a bit of a misnomer: Harvested in the fall, these hardy vegetables will keep well through the cold winter months for which they're named. Naturally low in fat and calories, the winter squash family delivers significant nutritional benefits. For example, one cup of baked butternut squash is rich in vitamins A (from beta carotene), B6, C, and E, as well as magnesium, potassium, and manganese.
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, the Delta variant is still on the rise. If you are not vaccinated, we encourage you to wear a mask to protect yourself and others. 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!
