A New Ave mainstay for years, the Crossroads Farmers Market aims to bring fresh, local food to all. The market, located on Anne Street at University Boulevard, is open on Wednesdays, 11am to 3pm. Market runs from April to late November.
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 chipilín, 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.
