STEVENSVILLE — The Kent Island Farmers Market will continue operating outside this winter for safety reasons due to pandemic concerns. During this darkest and coldest time of the year, hours of operation will be trimmed an hour, running 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Thursdays through February.

“We want to continue to provide the safest food in the safest manner possible during this difficult time. We take a lot of precautions to make sure of it,” said market manager Diane Bedlin.

The market has added new vendors, including Dangerously Delicious Pies, opened recently in Annapolis and owned by Centreville residents Chris and Kay Miller.

Another new addition to the market is Ozz Catering, a Turkish/Mediterranean catering company that specializes in accommodating dietary restrictions and uses many locally sourced organic ingredients. Dogwood Lane Dairy out of Chestertown also joined the market recently, offering nutritious A2A2 raw milk cheeses.

The market is located outdoors next to Cult Classic Brewery, 1169 Shopping Center Road in Stevensville. Find it on Facebook and Instagram at Kent Island Farmers Market and online at www.kentislandfarmersmarket.net.
