It is open 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays, through Nov. 18 in the jury parking lot at the corner of East Jefferson (MD 28) and Monroe streets in Rockville Town Center.

The Eat Fresh Rockville and Maryland Market Money programs remove economic barriers for food-insecure shoppers, by increasing access to fresh produce and increasing purchasing power. Eat Fresh Rockville is sponsored in part by grant funds from the Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission. The program aims to fight hunger while investing directly in farmers, strengthening the local food system. Stop by the market tent, located at the market entrance, for more information.
