Eat Local: New Mt. Airy Market

Mt. Airy has a new Farmers' Market this year, hosted by Farm to City, Valley Green Bank and Lutheran Theological Seminary.

Running Tuesdays, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the plaza at 7300 Germantown Avenue (across from WaWa), the market features vegetables, fruit, flowers (from Love 'n Fresh Flowers, profiled in April's Grid), pastured meats, cheese, baked goods and produce from nearby Weaver's Way Farm. Highlights include the season's first heirloom tomatoes, peaches and mason jar bouquets.

This is only a few blocks from my childhood home—how times have changed.
