Historic Sotterley’s Farmer’s Market Going on the Road!

Once again, our Farmer’s Market is “Going on the Road” on Saturday, May 18th from 9 am-1 pm to the Tobacco Barn Distillery, an 1830’s historic tobacco barn located at 24460 Hollywood Road in Hollywood, MD … less than 4 miles from us and just across the street from Gatton’s Barbershop. With the history, great food from our farmers and watermen, as well as a convenient place to shop, we invite you to come on by!

As a special treat for Armed Forces Day, the new Commanding Officer of NAS Patuxent River Maryland, Captain Christopher Cox, will stop by and share comments about the great Navy-Community relationship in Southern Maryland.

The Historic Sotterley Farmer’s Market at the Tobacco Barn Distillery will include local farm raised oysters, honey, Shiitake mushrooms, NEW aquaponic grown lettuce, eggs, microgreens, private labelled aged balsamic and extra virgin olive oils, and local bourbon, whiskies and rum. There will also be limited quantities of jumbo lump crab cakes and crab cake dinners from the World Famous Faidley’s Seafood in Baltimore, as well as filets, NY strip, and prime rib from Maryland’s premier dry aged, pasture fed Angus farm.

For those looking to take a “Rickhouse Tour” that afternoon, sign-ups will be available for tours at 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. Tours are limited to eight people and take about an hour. $30 fee includes a laser etched Glencairn tasting glass.
