The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts (BOPA) hosts Independent Women, featuring women-owned businesses, The Junior League of Baltimore and musician Marian McLaughlin for First Sundays at the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar.
Visitors can support women-owned businesses at the market by purchasing from them and receiving stamps on a punch card. Three stamps on the card entitle visitors to a gift from the market. Punch cards can be picked up from the welcome table on Holliday Street. Throughout the season, the market features more than 75 businesses owned by women, including Charm City Soaps, Drama MaMa Bookshop, Konscious Katerers, Mera Kitchen Collective, Oak Spring Farm, Pahl’s Farms, The Salad Lady, The Verandah and Terra Verde.
For the Independent Women theme at the market, visitors can also learn more about The Junior League of Baltimore, an organization of women that has been a part of Baltimore City for 107 years. The League is committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. Additionally, Baltimore-based experimental folk artist Marian McLaughlin performs from 10am – 12pm. McLaughlin weaves together imaginative lyrics, intricate classical guitar work and rhapsodic delivery to create songs that are delicate, yet full of depth.
