Roadside Stand

Harvest Time at Misty Valley Farms

One of my favorite roadside stands is Misty Valley Farms in Hunt Valley, Maryland. I stop by there throughout the operating season and always enjoy the wonderful produce for sale. The 2 links I just dropped are previous posts of this location. Now that Fall has arrived I knew it was time to swing by and check out the seasonal goods. I expected to see a wonderfully decorated produce stand when I arrived and I was not disappointed. This is always a fun place to visit.

Next we have a decorative wagon with the "Straw" family onboard. I wonder if they've been sipping too much cider, since they seem to be leaning a bit. :-)

Mums the word! What's the Fall season without a few of these?

In the spirit of the harvest, help yourself to some of the colorful goodies below. Bags are in the bin. ;-)

Produce for Sale

As the Summer season winds to a close, we here in the eastern U S are reminded that harvest time will soon be upon us. Many of the roadside stands will shut down for the season toward the end of October.  With that in mind I thought I would share one of the shots captured a few months ago. Maybe it's just me but I really believe that these farm fresh products carry a better taste and overall quality than many found in large supermarket chains, at least doing the Spring and Summer months when they are available. Just sayin'

Be safe and enjoy the weekend everyone!

Roadside Stand

Welcome back, friends! In today's post we visit a site that is just down the road from these grazing horses, a roadside stand. During the Summer months here in the Mid-Atlantic Region you see these stands spread around the various counties, often on the edge of farmland. These are great places to gather fresh veggies, fruits and all sorts of sauces.

Roadside stands are not limited to produce, all sorts of wares are sold from these temporary places of commerce.

Of course, like many traditional markets I have my favorites that I repeatedly visit. This particular stand in Worthington Valley is located in western Baltimore County and falls in the favs category. A seasonal operation, they will stay open to well into the Fall when the last harvest of the year takes place.

So let's get to the goodies. If you like farm fresh produce and the likes, the Misty Valley Farm stand pictured below is the place for you.
