Historic Sotterley is proud to host the Airport Farmer’s Market in partnership with the St. Mary’s County Regional Airport—and just in time for Valentine’s Day! This market will take place on Saturday, February 13th from 9:00 am—1:00 pm.  You will be able to find all types of treats for that special someone, and the Market will feature a wide variety of fresh, local, fun and delectable products.

The market will take place in the parking lot in front of the Airport Terminal building located at 44200 Airport Road, California, Maryland where visitors of all ages can shop while seeing airplanes and future aviators take to the skies!  Located in St. Mary’s County, the airport is about four miles northeast of the central business district of Leonardtown.

Due to COVID-19, all shoppers are requested to wear masks and keep a social distance from others while in the market area. The vendor booths will be spread out and there is plenty of parking next to and adjacent to the airport terminal building.

This Airport Famer’s Market embraces and showcases the rural characteristics of Southern Maryland while highlighting the role that our region has played in developing our nation’s air and space technologies. One of the most unique characteristics is that people can fly their plane into the airport from other parts of the region to buy goods and then fly home!

The markets will feature handcrafted chocolates, locally farmed oysters, pork from free-range heritage pigs, local honey, eggs, baked goods & breads, aged oils & vinegars, pickles, goat milk soap, spices, Kettle Corn, local wine, local beer, and local distillery offerings!  

Vendor listing will be available on Sotterley’s website at www.sotterley.org. For updates or changes due to inclement weather, check Historic Sotterley’s website and Facebook page.
