Welcome Market Vendors

The Town of Perryville's Farmers Market is located on the grounds of the Rodgers Tavern Museum at 259 Broad Street, Perryville, MD 21903, across from Lower Ferry Park.  Since 2013 the Market's goal is to bring fresh, local homegrown produce and homemade goods to the Town's residents and visitors.

The purpose of the Farmers Market is to provide a direct consumer outlet for many locally grown agricultural products, including non-produce items such as arts, crafts, baked goods and hand-made goods.  The Perryville Farmers Market is a "Producer Only Market" meaning products sold at the farmers market must be grown, produced, or made locally.
