The Highlandtown Farmers’ Market, now in its second year, opened in a new location last Thursday. This year, the market is in the grass lot attached to Abbott Memorial Presbyterian Church, Bank St. and Highland Ave.

“I think it’s a better space,” said market manager James Sharp, pastor of the nearby Nazareth Lutheran Church, also on Bank St. “It’s more open and safer.”

Last year, the market was on Conkling St. between Eastern Ave. and Bank St.

Sharp said that some of the mainstays from last year were returning to the market, and new vendors were also joining.

“It’s going to be a good season; I’m excited about it,” he said.

The Highlandtown Farmers’ Market runs on Thursdays, 4-8 p.m., through October. Farms such as the Barbour Fruit Farm, Black Rock Orchard and Kahl Family Farm offer fresh produce, while vendors including I Got Salsa, Jukai Juice and Baby Cakes Bakery offer treats to eat at the market or take home.
