Winter Market Returns

The Westover Farmers Market continues on Sundays, December thru April, but with new winter hours. The market will open at 9 am and continue until 1 pm with all the vendors you know and love. Check out the WFM winter market map.

WFM Raffle – Spooky Edition

The final Westover Farmers Market raffle of the season will take place this Sunday, October 30.  As usual, purchase at least $5 in goods at any booth and receive a raffle ticket. Write your name and number on the ticket and deposit it in the bin at the WFM tent. Drawings will be held every 30 minutes.

But wait! Kids who come dressed in Halloween attire will get extra tickets and there will be a few (scarily good?) prizes for best costumes. A ghoulish time for all – see you at the market.

… or forever hold your peach.

Free stone peaches, now appearing at the Westover Farmers Market. Sure to cure the August blues. Come down tomorrow 8 to noon and get your peach on.

Cherries and berries

We’re in the early summer season when soft fruits appear in the market. The bountiful strawberry crop of the past several weeks is ending. But blackberries, raspberries, cherries and other berries are taking their place in the farmers’ stands. And there is the possibility of a few early peaches! Recommend you visit the Westover Farmers Market early Sunday to have the best selection of seasonal fruits.

Memorial Day Market

For those of you staycationing this Memorial Day, come on down to the market to sample the latest in whats fresh and good. We’ll be there, 8 am to noon, enjoying the arrival of summer.

Strawberries and Asparagus

Its fresh, its here, so come down and get some! Can’t ask for better produce to start the season.

In case the weather confused you about the “summer” market opening last week, come celebrate tomorrow at WFM, 8 am to noon. While you’re making the rounds, check out two of the new vendors joining us for the summer: Twogoodavocados and Bonita Woods Wellness Institute.

See you at the market.

Jan. 24 Market Cancelled: Snowtastrophe '16

On account of the impending snow and the likelihood of difficult travel conditions, the Westover Farmers Market will not take place on January 24. Impromptu snow angel competition on the Reed School plaza instead. Stay safe, and see you on January 31.

Winter market hours begin this Sunday; Spriggs Delight Farm starts at the market

The winter season of the Westover Farmers Market opens this Sunday morning an hour later — 9 a.m.  The winter market runs until 1 p.m.

This will give customers more light and warmth during this cooler season of the year.  Adjust your shopping time accordingly.

Spriggs Delight Farm, which produces delectable varieties of goat cheese, begins at the market this Sunday.  The special strains of bacteria that transform the pasteurized goats milk into cheese remain alive in these products.  This means that the cheeses will continue to mature as they age and develop a stronger flavor — unlike store-bought cheeses.  Decide for yourself whether you like the cheese best mild or more funky, and age it at home in the refrigerator accordingly!  Spriggs Delight Farm, which is near Sharpsburg, Maryland, can be found up on the plaza near the Westover Library entrance.
