Open every Sunday from the beginning of June through the end of October at 10A-1P at the rear parking lot of Bennigan's in Historic Clarksburg, MD
It's Anti-Boredom week at the Market
Kids bored? While you're shopping have them stop by the Market Manager tent for a craft making butterfly magnets. The kids can decorate the wings and clothes pin body then pick a color pipe cleaner for the antennae.
Please, in the interest of sharing, one project per child.
Stop by the Whole Foods Market Kentland's tent for cooking demonstrations and ideas on what to make with the day's produce finds.
The cooks only bring standard pantry items with them; the rest is what they find when they arrive at the market
The Marketeers are returning! Kids (of all ages) join in with the instruments in the front.
Start the day with a Bennigan's breakfast beginning at 8AM. Market doesn't open util 10A so leisurely enjoy that cup of coffee outside on the patio before the Market.

Scenic View Scenic View Orchards began their operation in the mid 1800s with primarily a hay and grain operation. Through the years different crops were raised based on product demand and to allow for proper soil management practices. The farm has remained family owned and operated for the past seven generations.
Over the past twenty years, they have expanded our operation to include fruit trees and berries. You can find our produce at local farmer's markets in the area. Our wholesale business includes other local farm markets and a national grocery chain.
Abundant Grace Farm Abundant Grace Farm is local and owner operated. We love growing great food for you, but did you know that we also donate 10% of our produce to Manna Food Center via the Clarksburg Farmers Market. They do this to honor God and thank Him for His grace.
Their produce is available at the Clarksburg Farmers Market and the Montgomery Village Farmers Market.
CTCFM supports & promotes the local agricultural community by providing a venue for local farmers to connect with consumers in order to market locally gown, high quality, fresh produce, plants & food products. The Market also serves as a community gathering & information center relating to community activities & education about the local farming industry as well as organic products, giving us all the opportunity to think about what goes into producing our food supply.
The CTCFM is managed by an all volunteer Steering Committee comprised of residents from the surrounding Clarksburg communities & with the support of business sponsorship.
Each season we provide a dedicated site for local farmers, artisans, musicians, & community service organizations.
Each week, the CTCFM supports the Fresh Give Program through our corporate sponsorship & customer donations. We purchase produce at the close of the Market each week to provide food for Manna. Manna will distribute the fresh produce to families in need the next day. Local, fresh food, going to local families in need.
