CANCELLED: Airport Holiday Market Dec. 19

farmers market

The Holiday Farmer’s Market that was to take place on Saturday, December 19th at the St. Mary’s County Regional Airport has been CANCELLED due to the restrictions set in place by Governor Hogan and an advisory from the State of Maryland Department of Health yesterday.  The new public health advisory limits gatherings to 10 people or less.

We are sad that we cannot host this market for our community, but we realize that the health and protection of our citizens must come first.  We wish everyone in our Southern Maryland Community a safe and blessed holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you again in the New Year.

The market is traditionally held in the parking lot in front of the Captain Walter Francis Duke Terminal building located at 44200 Airport Road in California, MD, located about five miles north of NAS Patuxent River on Airport Road next to the Wildewood Shopping Center.

This Airport Farmers Market embraces and showcases the rural characteristics of Southern Maryland while highlighting the role that our region has played in developing our nation’s air and space technologies. One of the most unique characteristics is that people can fly their plane into the airport from other parts of the region to buy goods and then fly home!

The markets  feature locally farmed oysters, pork from free-range heritage pigs, local honey, eggs, baked goods and breads, aged oils and vinegars, pickles, goat milk soap, seasonal produce, local chocolates, spices, local wine,  local beer, and local distillery offerings as well as a food truck.

Vendor listing will be available on Sotterley’s website.  Also check the website for updates or changes.

Hope to see you at the Market!
