More Reasons to Come to Hollywood Farmers Market – Convenience, Local Crafts, and More..

[Here are a few more reasons that Council member Wojahn and I think we should all come to Hollywood Farmers Market.]

Help Revitalize the Hollywood Commercial District

The Hollywood commercial district around the intersection of Edgewood Road and Rhode Island Avenue lies at the heart of our neighborhood. While some parts of the district have seen slow but steady improvement over the past years, there are quite a few opportunities for other parts to improve. One way to make the Hollywood commercial district a vibrant market place is by building a strong customer base there. With our regular presence at the Hollywood Farmers Market, we can only help achieve that goal by adding additional traffic to these businesses in the Hollywood commercial district.

A vibrant commercial district is a necessary component of a vibrant community. Please help make the Hollywood Commercial District more vibrant by visiting the Hollywood Farmers Market and its surrounding businesses more often.

Get to Know Farmers who Live in Our Neighborhood!

In addition to hosting farmers from nearby cities and towns, Hollywood Farmers Market will host some farmers who will come directly from our own neighborhood. One is Hollywood’s very own Pete Charlerie. Pete is a University of Maryland Agricultural & Resource Economics alumnus and the owner of SunSplash Farm in Upper Marlboro. Additionally, a group of neighborhood resident farmers have joined together to sell some of the produce that they grow in their own gardens in Hollywood. How much more local can you get?

Please support local farming by coming to Hollywood Farmers Market this Saturday. Also, if you do backyard farming and want to join your neighbors and sell some of your produce, please let us know!
