Do you love shopping local, getting a taste of a town or uncovering handmade treasures when you travel? Well, Howard County's farmers markets are for you! There are six markets a week across Howard County, May through October. Experience Howard County like a local and enjoy home grown produce and locally made novelties. When visiting local farmers markets remember to bring your own bag or cooler, the earlier you shop the better, bring small bills, and try something new!
