Roots & Stems Community Farmers Market offers residents Maryland and Virginia produce from local farms, value added foods and an artisans/crafters marketplace. The market bridges a gap where there is no affordable or easily accessible farmer's market and also fulfills transportation barriers in southern Prince George's County, MD gaining greater access to farm produce for nearby residents. The market supports the Prince George's County Executive's "Transforming Neighborhoods Initiative" and with the M-NCPPC's Health and Wellness Initiative. The overarching goal is to encourage residents to adapt to healthier lifestyles by purchasing seasonal produce while supporting farmers/food producers. Outreach to citizens who use EBT (SNAP, WIC, Senior vouchers) will ensure residents are utilizing these tools.
Get Fit! Get Healthy! . . . Get In the Zone! Farmers' Market visitors may also take advantage of the nearby Southern Regional Technology and Recreation Complex to enjoy a workout or visit the Tucker Road Athletic Complex around the corner to take a stroll, power walk, run, a game of basketball, baseball, tennis, golf before heading back home.
