Prince George’s County Department of Parks and recreation seeks to improve healthy food access for our residents while promoting economic and agricultural development. Stock up on fresh and tasty foods for you and your family all while supporting local farmers.
Prince George’s County has several farmers markets located throughout the county. Purchase organic produce, fresh baked goods, artisanal soaps and candles, various plants and herbs, and much more!
