No doubt you’ve missed those sweet blueberries, yummy baked treats, and free-range chicken as much as we have. Happily, our wait is over. Our favorite farmers’ market, the Pike Central Farm Market, returns to the parking lot at 5922 Executive Boulevard (at the corner of Old Georgetown Road and Executive Blvd) this Saturday from 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Opening day will feature free balloon creations for the kids, Cove Point Winery with free wine tastings, Oat My Goodness with fabulous granola, The Rockville Potters with their wonderful pottery, and delicious handmade candies by The Chocolatiers Palette. They will have fresh crepes from Rita’s and southwestern foods from The Culinary Nomad for breakfast along with hot steaming coffee from Zekes Coffee. Sit and enjoy while listening to the music of Caroline Glattly and Adam Kazminsky. Other vendors will have fresh produce, eggs, cheeses, meats, poultry, breads, cakes, doughnuts, fish, ice cream, and much more all summer long.
In honor of this much-anticipated day, Pike & Rose is celebrating with a contest to win a $200 Farm Market Happy Pak. Click here for more details.
The famous weekly Walking Fitness Class also returns this Saturday. They will hold an Interval Toning and Cardio class at Pike Central Farm Market lead by a certified fitness instructor. The class is designed to challenge your body in as many ways as possible as we walk a specified route. Sign up at Prisnaanderson@gmail.com.
