Produce - Produce available at the market includes blueberries, cantaloupe, cherries, corn, cucumbers, green beans, onions, peaches, peppers, tomatoes, watermelon, yellow squash, zucchini and more. We have two high tunnels to extend our season, and all of the produce in them is naturally grown (untreated seeds, no conventional chemicals are used). We strive to grow our field vegetables (tomatoes, cantaloupes, squashes, peppers, cucumbers) in the same manner, although we do occasionally use treated seeds. We also use the same all-natural fertilizer for both our high tunnel and field crops. Any produce that isn't grown by us is sourced locally from other MD farms and, depending on the time of year, out-of-state farms as well.
In addition to produce, we sell goods from the following local businesses:
Lapp Family Bakery - We will no longer be carrying the Lapp's family's baked goods, as they have decided to retire from the wholesale business. However, they will still bake for the Chestertown Farmer's Market, which takes place on Saturday mornings from April-November. So if you really need a pie (and we know you will!), please visit them there.
Kilby Cream - Kilby Cream has been producing fresh, homemade ice cream in Rising Sun, MD since 2005. They make their own mix and ice cream using milk from their Cecil County dairy. In 2010 they started bottling their own milk, which is also availble at the market in old-fashioned glass bottles. We sell 2%, whole, and chocolate milk.
Kraszewski Family Farm - Kate's husband, Steve, grew up on a beef farm in Corning, NY. In 2010 we began selling his family's beef products. Their animals are pasture-raised and supplemented with local grain during the winter months; the beef is all-natural, no added hormones or antibiotics. It's been a huge hit at the market; we know you'll love it! Here is a list of what we carry:

Besides having our beef butchered there, Dan also supplies our market with delicious pork from various small farms throughout Pennsylvania. As with Steve's parents' animals, the pork is all-natural, no added hormones or antibiotics. Here are the pork products we carry:

Eve's Cheese - Eve’s Cheese (named after the family’s award-winning Jersey cow) is made with Grade-A milk from a Kent County (MD) dairy. The milk is transported to an Amish cheese maker who handcrafts the milk into Eve's Cheese. We sell a variety of cheddar cheeses.
Local Honey - The honey we carry is from hives within a few miles of the farm!
AND OF COURSE, SNOW CONES!
