Grand opening preview: June 29:
Our market had its soft opening 2 weeks ago, but we’re planning a lot of new features and exciting events for our grand opening on June 29! We will have new vendors, including delicious barbecue from Bill’s Backyard BBQ, which has been wildly popular at the downtown College Park Farmer’s Market and at College Park Day! We will have a number of local officials present to mark the occasion, including local police officers and elected officials. Please stay tuned for the complete line up of vendors for this grand opening day!
