Govanstowne Farmers' Market returns for ninth season
| By Molly Robey
Loyola University Maryland’s York Road Initiative will host the ninth season of the Govanstowne Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays from 3 – 6 p.m. between June 3 and Sept. 30, 2020. The market, which will feature personal shoppers and social distancing measures, will be located in the parking lot of Loyola's Transportation and Public Safety complex at 5104 York Rd. The side entrance on Notre Dame Lane will be the main point of entry for walk-up and drive-through traffic.
“The mission of the Govanstowne Farmers’ Market is to provide access to fresh produce, building community, and supporting local business,” said Marie McSweeney Anderson, assistant director of the York Road Initiative. “We are committed to opening as an essential business during this global pandemic. Although it may not be ‘business as usual,’ all the changes to the market are for the safety of our customers and vendors. Customers can take pride in the fact they are supporting all locally-owned and operated small businesses from our state, our city, and even our own neighborhood.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s market will include a few changes and social distancing measures. Only food vendors will be included. Market selections include fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, cold crabs and seafood, baked goods, and hot Mexican food, including tacos and burritos.
