The St. Michaels Farmers Market promotes sustainable agriculture, brings fresh local food to the center of town on a weekly basis and improves food access and equity for our Bay Hundred community. We do this by operating a producer-only farmers market in the heart of St. Michaels, by creating vital economic opportunities for local farmers and food producers, and through innovative outreach programs that educate the public about food and related environmental issues.

Local farmers and food producers are at the core of our mission, and helping them to thrive is a pillar of our work. Across our 18-year history, we’ve supported farmers from Talbot, Dorchester, Caroline, and Kent Counties, as well as small farmers from nearby counties in Delaware and Maryland counties west of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

Founded in 1998 as part of FRESHFARM Markets, and becoming an independent community organization in 2017, the St. Michaels Farmers Market is a leader in the local food movement.

Located in historic town of St. Michaels, MD, on the Eastern Shore, the market is a Saturday destination for locals, weekenders, and boaters. Farmers offer fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, cut flowers, potted plants, breads and pastries, cow’s milk cheeses, orchids, eggs, and honey. They also host events and activities throughout the season, including Chef at Market events and a community cook-off.

Partner Organizations:
The Community Food Bank, Commissioners of St. Michaels, St. Michaels Business Association.

August 31—CBMM Charity Boat Auction

CBMM_BoatAuction_2011_03Date: Labor Day Weekend, Saturday, August 31, 2019.
Gates open at 8 am; auction begins at 11 am
Location: Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM)

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) is hosting its 19th annual Charity Boat Auction with proceeds benefiting the children and adults served by the museum. The live auction begins at 11 a.m. along the museum’s waterfront campus, where more than 100 boats—ranging in size and performance from sailing dinghies to cabin cruisers, and everything in between—will be auctioned off to the highest bidders. CBMM’s Boat Donations Program Manager Lad Mills takes donations and resells boats throughout the year, holding aside some of his inventory for the annual auction. Mills travels up and down the east coast working with boat owners and potential buyers wishing to support the museum through boat donations and sales.

“The revenue generated by the auction goes directly toward helping the museum’s educational programs and maintaining its antiquities,” says Mills. “Let us take an unused or unwanted boat off your hands, and you can receive a nice tax deduction. Each donated boat helps the museum do great things for the people we serve.”

The event also includes a flea market-style tag sale from 9 a.m. til noon in which visitors are able to purchase a variety of used boating gear, including ground tackle, electrical equipment, hardware, rope or chain, ladders, fishing tackle, motors, and more.

Beginning at noon, beer and barbeque will be available for purchase. A majority of the auction boats can be viewed atwww.cbmm.org/boatauction, with inventory updated weekly. Boat sales are on-going throughout the year, with all auction boats subject to sale prior to the auction. Auction boats will be available for inspection at the museum, several days prior to the auction.

Advance bids will be accepted and can be called in at 410-745-2916 until noon on August 30. On August 31, the campus gates open at 8 a.m., with early admission at $5 per person until 1:30 p.m. After 1:30 p.m., admission returns to the regular daily rates of $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with a college ID, and $6 for children between the ages of 6 and 17. Children under 6 and museum members are admitted free.

To donate a boat or items for the tag sale, or for a fully updated listing of the boats up for auction, please contact Lad Mills at 410-745-4942.

To donate a boat or items for the tag sale, or to call in advance bids by 12 noon on Auction Day, contact 410-745-4961

Talbot Street in St. Michaels is once again sporting its annual finery – the colorful art banners of 2017! Now in its eighth year, this event is a favorite with residents and visitors alike, compliments of the members of the St. Michaels Art League.

Patrons will have an additional opportunity to purchase original banner paintings during the League’s Labor Day weekend art show on the grounds of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church on Talbot Street. The outdoor banners made from these paintings can be purchased directly from the artists in December when the banners are taken down from the street poles.

Sincere appreciation is extended to the Talbot Arts Council, St. Michaels Branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Choptank Electric Cooperative, and local merchants for their continued support of the banner program.
