Please see below today’s Hollywood Farmers Market Newsletter
==================
The market will be back in full swing this Saturday! We are looking forward to having our farms back this week. Calvert Farm, EcoCity Farm, Jose Montoya, and Waltz Family Farm will be at the market to complement our honey farm- Victory Chapel Family Farm!
Sven Abow, with Tower Green and Proverbs bands and music teacher at Waldorf school, will join Eric Vesper in guitar and drums.

The University of Maryland Dairy, Baker Charley and Gloria Bakery will return this week. Many, many more….

The Maryland Farmers Market Association is running a #LoveMDmarkets Instagram contest again this year, and for the first time have opened it up to shoppers! Along with market managers, shoppers will be eligible to win big while sharing the love for their favorite markets.
The prize for the winning shopper will be a fully loaded basket of MDFMA’s favorite value-added Maryland-made goodies.
The way the contest works is simple. First, you must follow the Maryland Farmers Market Association on Instagram and join #LoveMDmarkets Facebook group. Shoppers need to post twice a week to their Instagram feed using #LoveMDmarkets and tag MDFMA in their posts! MDFMA will pick a winner based on the total number of likes for posts as well as the originality of the content. Good Luck!

The Buy Local Challenge is July 20th-28th. Why is it important to buy/eat locally grown foods? Buying local is good for you, good for the local economy, and good for the planet! Buying from local farms helps you get products that are fresher, and have traveled much shorter distances overall from farm to fork. Plus, you’re supporting independent family farms which helps strengthen the economy. https://www.buylocalchallenge.com/
