The 2009 FreshFarm Farmers Market will begin 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and run every Saturday through Dec. 19, the longest run in its five-year history.
For the second year, the market will be held along Ellsworth Drive between Fenton Street and Georgia Avenue in Downtown Silver Spring. Last year, it ran through November, and in 2007 it ran from May 5 to Oct. 27.
"Every year the market gets better and better as far as more customers and sales to farmers," said Janna Howley, Maryland markets and marketing manager for FreshFarm.
