Delicious in August. Watermelons!

Maryland farmers harvest 2,295 acres of
watermelons according to USDA’s Ag Census. In addition to many farms
around the state (273 farms) who grow watermelons in smaller quantities
for farm-stands and farmers markets, the State is also home to one of the
nation’s largest watermelon producing regions on the Eastern Shore.
Combined with Delaware, farmers on the Shore ship melons to grocery
store chains throughout Maryland and the Northeast region. For the
consumer, that means August is the time to enjoy the freshest, local
watermelons possible! Get yours today.
