Welcome to our first “Virtual Farmers Market!”  

Below is the link to our online store where you can buy our certified organic vegetables, plants and Anchored Roots Farm fresh cut flower bouquets. It has been a long, very cool spring, which means vegetables are growing s-l-o-w-l-y. That said, we do have some fresh spring greens, carrots and other goodies.  As the seasons continue and the weather gets warmer, we will have more and different vegetables. Happy Shopping!

Greetings Everyone!

David, Jennifer, and farm crew are all healthy and we hope you are as well! Though many things have changed, nature reassures us. Spring has arrived and it is a time of renewal! I think we are all craving healthy, organic, nutritious food. In response, we have been very busy planting more vegetables than ever, as the demand for local produce has, well, grown!  

Our Plan. We will have an online virtual farmers market, where you will see photos of the veggies available each week, place your order, and buy through our online store. You will then pick up your pre-purchased veggies from our farm each Saturday, starting May 2nd. We feel this is the safest way for us to bring our vegetables to you. We will provide details soon with a link to our online store. This means that we will not be at the California Farmers Market (opening this Saturday, 25 April) for the foreseeable future. We encourage you to also visit our fellow Market Farmer friends.

Flower Bouquets. Some exciting news is that we will also offer through our online store local, seasonal, fresh-cut flower bouquets from Anchored Roots Farm, owned and operated by Priscilla Leitch who has worked at our farm and market stand over the years. If you have any questions about her gorgeous bouquets, please email her at info@anchoredrootsfarm.com.

Even though some things have changed, it can be an opportunity to try something new!  We so appreciate how you have supported our farm over the years and we want to be there for you now.

What's Going On...
 
Greetings everyone. We and our employees are healthy here on the farm and hope the same for you and your families.
 
We have been very busy planting per our normal crop schedule and selling as much produce that we have to The Good Earth Natural Foods Co in Leonardtown and Chesapeake's Bounty in St Leonard and North Beach.
 
We are keeping a close eye on federal, state and local directives regarding our business staying open and selling our produce. On the farm, we are adhering to CDC and WHO guidelines to protect our customers and employees.
 
The Maryland Department of Agriculture announced on 19 March that they consider "farmers markets an essential business and an important source of food for many Marylanders. The department is asking that farmers' markets remain open during the current state of emergency."
 
The California Farmer's Market is scheduled to open 25 April 9 am; however, it is too soon to say if it will open as scheduled and if so, what changes to the operation will be put in place. We are planning on being there and are researching and consulting with experts on how we can operate in a safe and healthy manner.
 
We miss you all and will keep you posted!
