The Bazaar’s artisans offer handmade crafts, antiques, collectibles, and original works of art for purchase throughout the market.

The Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar will offer all of these elements in a reduced capacity at the start of the 44th season to maintain proper distancing and gathering limits. Attendees can expect to enjoy markets favorites, including Albright Farms,The Salad Lady, The Mushroom Stand, and can look forward to new food options like ice cream at Corazon Helado, Haitian cuisine at Sobeachy, and fresh juices from Revive. Market goers will be able to once again browse the Bazaar, with offerings from Mount Royal Soaps, Lax & Lux Candles, Printemps Pottery, and others.
