Farm stand around Baltimore

Are there any farm stands within a 10-15 mile radius of Baltimore City? Not a farmer's market, but more along the lines of a Baugher's in Westminster.

    Not sure what you mean by farm stand, but if you mean a permanent place that sells local produce, check out George's Farm Market on Harford Rd slightly north of Taylor Ave in Baltimore County. Good produce, great people.

        I'm not sure where you live, but if you're close to the west side of town there is a place in Catonsville on Frederick Rd., between Rolling and Ellicott City (on the right when you're going towards EC). I forget what it's called - they used to be next to Dimitiri's, and they just moved into a place that used to sell lawn mowers. They have lots of fresh produce and flowers - and the corn is good.
        While you're at it, you can stop by Trueth's in Oella for some fresh meat!

          You also may want to check out theDutch Market in Cockeysville next to Valley View Farms. There is also a market at Shawan and Falls Rd...

            I haven't been there in years (it's no longer convenient to where I live), but Harold's Fruit Market on Joppa Rd (a bit east of Loch Raven Blvd) used to have lots of local produce.

              George's and Weber's are much better than Harold's now, although I do go to Harold's for Humphrey's charcoal. Great stuff.

                I don't think Harold's has had anything local for years... I find Weber's to be very expensive. Is George's that stand that has the great hanging baskets in the late spring? There is a small stand on Harford Rd going north right before Long Green Pike on the right, although I have not tried it. I wish there was a great stand close. The only close farmer's market to this area is in White Marsh on Thursdays, not a great day to go to a farmers market.

                  That's very sad if true (and I have no reason to doubt you).

                  I worked there when I was a teenager (quite a few decades ago), and I have fond memories of when the local corn would come in in the morning, often still warm from the field.

                  I remember local tomatoes and other vegetables from Huber's, and I remember the name Breidenbaugh, but no longer remember what produce we got from them. There were lots of others as well.

                    Yes, Hal, I used to frequent Harold's years ago and it was quite good, but no more. Gibber, that sounds like George's with the hanging flower baskets.

                Harold's isn't taht great compared to George's and Weber's. They do sell Humphrey's charcoal, though, which is great stuff.
