From spring to late autumn, fruits, vegetables, and an assortment of flowers, baked goods, condiments, and more are sold locally at regional farmers' markets, usually once per week. The largest of these is held in Baltimore City on Sunday mornings (8:00 a.m. to noon) from May 4 to December 21. It is located at Holliday St. and Saratoga St. under the Jones Falls Expressway.

Other farmers' markets, around the Baltimore metropolitan region, offer fresh produce on Saturday mornings at Dundalk, Highlandtown, Howard Park, and Waverly. Still others open weekdays at Catonsville, Eastpoint, Pikesville, Towson, and White Marsh.
In every county of Maryland, a farmers' market offers a way to buy fresh local produce, and support Maryland agriculture.
