University of Maryland Medical Center drew a large crowd – even with the threat of rain – to the opening of its farmers’ market Tuesday. Although it’s just the beginning of the season, big juicy strawberries, enticing asparagus and bunches of leafy greens were on sale.

This year brings antibiotic and hormone-free meat; pesticide-free produce; plants, pickles, and of course the signature crepes, burgers, spreads, soups, and more.

And for a third year the University Farmers Market is accepting Women Infants and Children (WIC) vouchers and senior coupons.

With our office nearby, the MD H2E staff always looks forward to Tuesdays and what the market will bring! Here’s to a successful season.

The market is open Tuesdays from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm, through November 22.
