New Produce Vendor Joins College Park Farmers Market

We are pleased to announce the Montoya Farms has joined the College Park Farmers Market in Hollywood, offering a range of local produce.  We expect Montoya to stay with us through November.  We also have specialty organic vegetables from Blue Berwyn, meat from the Waltz Family Farms, locally roasted coffee, and other vendors.

The market is fully set up to accept SNAP benefits and persons using SNAP can double the value with Maryland Market Money.  We will distribute flyers with a $5.00 coupon at the upcoming Friday Night Live (July 14), and will soon have musicians playing at the market from 11 am to 1:00 pm (in addition to our longtime group that plays from around 9:30 to 11:00).

Please visit the website, to get updates on the vendors and please share information about the market with your neighbors!  The farmers market will also be prominently displayed in the upcoming Here and Now (in the College Park Post section) and the July Municipal Scene.

Employment Opportunity – Farmers Market Food Access Coordinator

The Hollywood Farmers Market needs a person to run the Market Money Program. This program is designed to aid people on SNAP and WIC to have affordable access to the Farmers’ Market and farm fresh produce. This food Justice and food Equity program has created growth at the Riverdale Park Farmers Market and the Greenbelt Farmers Market. The need has been significant enough to make a difference for the vendors in those markets.

The market should start in late April or early May, so the timeline is relatively short. The Market Money Coordinator would need to be at the market every Saturday for the duration of the market to manage the program. Here is a Word document detailing the program. Bilingual is a plus (Spanish/English), but not necessary.

This position will run from the date of hire through November 18, 2023, and is at a rate of $18/hour.

Please spread the word. Thank you.​

City Staff to Run Hollywood Farmers Market Operations

The Hollywood Farmers Market

The Hollywood Farmers Market is staffed by two seasonal contract employees (Julie Beavers and Aaron Springer) who serve as independent contractors.

The Hollywood Farmers market started 10 years ago. It runs in the parking lot of the Hollywood Shopping Center located at 9801 Rhode Island Avenue, on Saturdays between Saturday, May 7, 2022, and Saturday, November 19, 2022, from 9 am-1 pm.

The City now wishes to change the employment relationship with the two seasonal employees from being an Independent Contractor to becoming a Part-Time, Temporary City employee, without benefits.

This change would become effective in the 2023 Market Season. The City will also secure insurance for the Hollywood Farmers Market operations.

At next week’s meeting, the City Council will consider approving these changes.
