Healthy Food For All

Crossroads Farmers Market is a lively community gathering space for people of all backgrounds and incomes, where families, foodies, neighbors, gardeners, live-music fans, and coffee lovers meet every Wednesday afternoon to eat lunch and stock up on fresh ingredients for the week ​ahead. ​This producers-only market features a range of vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, honey, coffee, seed and nut snacks​, Central American herbs like chipil​ín, and tasty prepared foods, as well as food demos and tastings, kids’ activities, live music, and other events.

Crossroads was the first market in Maryland to accept federal nutrition benefits, and the first in the country to launch a “double dollar” incentive program to match the value of these benefits spent at the market. Eligible shoppers are able to stretch their buying power to bring home more fresh fruits and vegetables, and at the same time support local farmers and vendors—three quarters of whom are immigrants themselves. ​

Become a sponsor

Sponsoring Crossroads Farmers Market is one of the best values around for promoting your business or organization. Last year the market saw nearly 1,200 visitors each week, and market shoppers spent more than $16,000 at nearby businesses. For a tiny fraction of that amount, you can greatly increase visibility of your business or organization, as well as showcase your commitment to giving back to our community. There are a range of support options, and we are also able to customize your package to best fit your desired support level.

Become a volunteer

Are you passionate about *everyone* in our community having access to fresh, healthy food? Want to develop professional skills and/or practice foreign language skills? Then join our volunteer team! We’re now accepting volunteer applications for the 2017 farmers market season, which begins on May 31 and runs through December 27. Positions vary from bilingual Fresh Checks Assistant to Farmer Sales Associate to CSA Assistant to Market Chef, and more! Most positions require a commitment on Wednesdays. We look forward to hearing from you!

Join our multi-farm CSA!
