About the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar
As Maryland’s largest produce-only market, the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar is a favorite Baltimore Sunday morning tradition offering fresh cut flowers, seasonal fruits and vegetables, freshly baked bread and pastries, dairy products, meats and seafood, and more. Food concessionaires sell gourmet foods, spirits, wine, freshly brewed coffee, and delicious hot foods for breakfast and brunch. The Bazaar’s artisans offer handmade crafts, antiques, collectibles, and original works of art for purchase throughout the market. The Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar will offer all of these elements in a reduced capacity at the start of the 44th season to maintain proper distancing and gathering limits.

A Friendly Note About Pets at the Market
By Sandy Lawler
I love my dog. Everyone that knows him calls him Happy Jack… the happiest 70lbs of black and brown pup around. I take him to the shore, dog parks, walk him all over... but there are just some spots I don’t take him. I don’t take him to crowded places and events like the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar. It’s too crowded, and I do not want to stress him out and set him up for an incident that could hurt someone or him.
So as a reminder, pets are not allowed at the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar, and it is a Baltimore City Health Department ticketable offense of up to $1,000.00!
Thank you for your cooperation.
NO ANIMALS are allowed at the market and bazaar (per Baltimore City Health Department Rules and Regulations).
The Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar is a smoke-free zone. The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Art and the Baltimore City Health Department declared the market tobacco free effective Sunday, April 10, 2011.
