Govans Farmers Market to return for 12th season
| By Marcus Dean
Loyola University Maryland’s York Road Initiative (YRI) will host the 12th season of the Govans Farmers Market on Wednesdays from 3 – 6 p.m. between June and September 2023.
The market will be located in the parking lot of Loyola's Transportation and Public Safety complex at 5104 York Road. The side entrance on Notre Dame Lane will be the main point of entry.
“We are excited about what’s in store for the market as we enter our 12th season,” said Gia Grier McGinnis, Dr.PH., executive director for Loyola’s Center for Community, Service, and Justice (CCSJ) and the York Road Initiative. “As always, we will offer special subsidy programs that will make local goods and produce fresh accessible to all. We are also grateful to have the market sponsored by the Small Business Administration this cycle, which will allow us to have special promotions each month.”
Located just a short walk from Loyola’s Evergreen Campus, the Govans Farmers Market was created to provide the York Road community of north Baltimore City with produce that is affordable, fresh, and local. Market selections include returning favorites serving fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, cold crabs and seafood, baked goods, and hot Mexican food, including tacos and burritos.
Loyola’s York Road Initiative continues to work toward making an impact on the York Road corridor, recently celebrating the approval of the York Corridor Business Improvement District.
