Market FAQs

We are open Thursday – Sunday from 10am to 6pm

Everyone is welcome at the Country Market. No membership required.

Not only is it a CSA Pickup Location, but we also have a great variety of fresh local produce from our farm and those we partner with, as well as farm fresh milk, Howard County grass-fed beef, pork, and poultry, wild caught Alaskan fish, honey, jams and jellies, other local craft food pantry items, delicious ice cream, Zeke’s locally roasted coffee, and local and artisanal cheeses, just to name a few things. You really can get most of your grocery items here. Plus, since the focus is on local as much as possible, you can shop with peace of mind, knowing the food hasn’t traveled all over the World before it reaches your plate.

Since it is a small specialty food store and can get crowded at times with people of all ages, we don’t recommend it.

Yes – a VERY tiny one. For customers only please.

The local butcher we use in Carroll County flash freezes our meat immediately after butchering. Since we often buy whole steers and pigs at a time, we certainly don’t want them to spoil before they sell. Rest assured that it has only been frozen once and will be fresh upon thawing for your cooking at home. Unlike other grocery stores where meat can often be frozen, thawed, and refrozen again.

Pasture Raised. We just think they’re the best.

Yes. It is illegal to sell completely unpasteurized milk in the state of Maryland. We get our milk from Trickling Springs Dairy, and just think it’s superb. It is only lightly pasteurized and we think you can taste the farm fresh difference.
