Bethesda Green accelerates the sustainable economy locally with a focus on innovation through the Be Green Hub, on impact through the Be Impact Initiative, and through our Community Engagement.
Bethesda Central Farm Market is located in bustling downtown Bethesda, on the lot of Bethesda Elementary School. The market is one of the largest farmers markets in the region, hosting over 100 vendors and artisan food producers year-round.
The market is open year-round and features table seating, music, local Maryland winery and farm brewery tastings, kids club activities, chef demos, and much more.
Central Farm Markets was founded in 2008 by Debra Moser and Mitch Berliner. Bethesda Central Farm Market was the first market, which began in a small parking lot with 17 vendors. Today Central Farm Markets has four farm markets in Maryland and Virginia.
Debra and Mitch’s mission is to provide a professionally managed community venue where customers can purchase high quality, locally grown fresh and prepared food, and support agricultural innovation, green practices and sustainability.
Each market supports its local community with activities, events, and programming that help to educate, give back and fight hunger.
