Rockville, Maryland, May 4 – Rockville’s Farmers Market returns Saturday, May 12 to give shoppers their pick of farm-fresh produce and more from regional grower/producers.

This year’s market will include vendors offering fruits and vegetables, plants and flowers, herbs, baked goods, local wine and spirits, knife sharpening, meat and coffee.

New vendors will offer fresh cheeses, mushrooms from the Eastern Shore, beeswax candles, soaps, empanadas, herbs, flowers and other locally grown fruits and vegetables.
