America’s only “Fly-in” Farmer’s Market is back by popular demand at the St. Mary’s County Airport inside the Terminal Building. Treat yourself, or someone special to local farm produce on Saturday, February 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be locally farmed oysters, breads, baked goods, honey, meats, eggs, pork as well as hard apple cider, Bourbon & Whiskeys!
State Senator Jack Bailey and Delegate Brian Crosby will make a “bi-partisan” arrival by helicopter at 11 a.m. and be available to discuss local issues as well as the important legislation at the current Maryland General Assembly session in Annapolis.
This “Fly-in” Farmer’s Market is unique to St. Mary’s County and highlights the bond between our local agriculture & aquaculture community with the creative and knowledge-based economy supporting our aerospace industry. While St. Mary's has attractive assets and PAX River draws professionals from all over the county, the region is working hard to retain its homegrown workforce. “Events like this add to the quality of life as well as workforce attraction & retention,” said Chris Kaselemis, Director of Economic Development for St. Mary’s County.
While this is a “Fly-in” farmers market because it is located the terminal building, most people simply drive or bike to the event. The market is conveniently located in the emerging Airport Innovation District, 44200 Airport Rd, California, MD 20619 .
