Corn in the truck, corn in the field. Corn in the bottom of a moonshine still.
Corn in a kettle, corn in a skillet. Corn in a jug, hot dang*, you can feel it!

Say Hello to Early Sweet Corn! Come Buy Local with us - Rain or Shine - as we greet the good old summertime's abundant harvest at the Mount Airy Main Street Farmers' Market this Wednesday, June 23, 3-7PM! We will be in the Railyard behind the historic Mount Airy Train Station, at 3 North Main Street in Mount Airy, Maryland, this Wednesday and every Wednesday, 3-7 PM, through September 29, 2021! Parking is limited on-site. Convenient parking is available in the upper Bank Parking Lot across Main Street and up in the Municipal Parking Lot off of Park Avenue.
MUSIC AT THE MARKET ~ 4-6PM: Local Musician, Joanne Murphy, will fill the marketplace with some traditional old time Appalachian fiddle music, traditional Celtic music as well as waltzes, contra dance tunes and Irish Airs (in the public domain).. She'll be serenading us as she plays her hammered dulcimer and fiddle! Often she brings others to play along with her! Look for Joanne to return the fourth Wednesdays of the month through August.
STORYTIME AT THE MARKET ~ 4:30-4:45 PM: Join us as local storyteller, Laura Zaborowski, reads Margaret Wise Brown's "The Fish with the Deep Sea Smile!" The Fish with the Deep Sea Smile is about "one family’s quest among The Fish with the Deep Sea Smile. There are plenty of different fishes to explore and learn in the deep sea. Fish with blue-green eyes and whiskers three or with electric lights or fish with terrible claws? Did they manage to find the fish with a Deep Sea Smile?" Find out when Laura reads this fun rhythmic rhyming fish tale this Wednesday! Laura will read on select afternoons around 4:30 p.m. on the train station's platform stage at the 2021 Mount Airy Main Street Farmers’ Market! Great for Kids (of All Ages but great for those at year 1 and older)! Sponsored by The Last Word Bookstore.
VENDORS AT THE MARKET: Our Farmers and Producers this Wednesday, June 23rd, are slated to be:
Grilled Flank Steak with Corn Relish from Country Living's 25 Super Scrumptious Ways to Eat Sweet Corn This Summer; besides fresh off the cob, of course!

Our patrons, vendors and farmers' market team appreciate it.
We encourage social distancing, and hand washing/sanitation while on-site at the market.
