Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar

Join us at the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar on Sunday, November 5 from 9 to 11 am for oyster shucking demos and sustainable seafood talks during “Seafood by the Harbor.” Meet the National Aquarium’s Seafood Smart team and learn how you can make healthy, ecologically sound seafood choices that benefit you and the ocean.

This is part of the market’s special “First Sunday” programming, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar with special guests, performances, cooking classes, events and giveaways. These programs are held the first Sunday of each month during the 2017 market season, which runs April through mid-December.
