Emily's Produce gears up to celebrate 20th anniversary

Emily’s Produce, a popular roadside market in Cambridge, is celebrating 20 seasons of fresh produce, ready-made meals and family fun, with a free community breakfast on Sunday, Aug. 11.

CAMBRIDGE — Emily’s Produce in Cambridge is gearing up to celebrate 20 years of doling out fresh produce, ready-made meals and good, clean family fun.

Since 1999, when Emily’s Produce first opened, the roadside market has become increasingly loved and relied on by Eastern Shore residents.

Owners Paul and Kelly Jackson named their family-run farm after their newborn daughter, Emily, and used the business as a tool to teach her the importance of hard work.

For Emily’s Produce’s 20-year anniversary, the market is giving back to the community that has propelled it to continued success throughout the years.

On Sunday, Aug. 11, the Jackson family is throwing a party with a free breakfast, Starbucks coffee, vendors and music by Jay Jones — and everyone’s invited.

The breakfast will start at 9 a.m. and go until 10 a.m. The vendor fair will be up and running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The live music will go from 1 to 3 p.m.

In the days leading up to the anniversary celebration, visitors can join Emily’s Produce on Thursday, Aug. 8, for goat yoga.

Professional yoga instruction will be provided by Overboard Paddle & Fitness. The yoga session costs $20 and includes a complimentary fresh fruit smoothie.

On Friday, Aug. 9, the family also is hosting a ribbon cutting with a “Business After Hours & Ice Cream Social” at the market. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 7 p.m.

The company wrote on its Facebook page it’s looking forward to many more years serving the community it has called home for seven generations.
