History: Founded in 2011, the Govanstowne Farmers' Market, sponsored by Loyola University Maryland, the York Road Partnership, and the Govanstowne Business Association, seeks to provide the York Road community of north Baltimore City with produce that is affordable, fresh, and local.  In the 2012 season, our vendors sold over $4,000 in fruits and vegetables by accepting federal, state, and local benefits.  Due to this success, Govanstowne Farmers Market was chosen by the United Way as a pilot program researching food access in low income areas.  In the 2013 season the market was awarded Baltimore Bonus Bucks from Maryland Hunger Solutions.  This grant allowed those utilizing EBT and WIC FVC to double their dollars up to $5.  Learn more about why we have a farmers market here

For more information about the mission of the market and how you can get involved, contact the market manager, Marie Anderson at memcsweeney@loyola.edu or 410-617-1171.
