PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Sept. 1, 2020 – Calvert County residents and visitors are encouraged to enjoy the bounty of the bay by purchasing locally sourced seafood on Saturdays through September, known as “Buy Maryland Seafood Days.” Support the county’s watermen by purchasing local and sustainably sourced blue crabs, fish, oysters, and more.
Calvert County has a rich and diverse history rooted in aquaculture and the Chesapeake Bay is stocked full of delicious delicacies unique to Maryland.
