Maryland pick-your-own operations and farm stands are loaded with lots of local fruit and vegetable options as summer fades. Apple picking season is just underway at many pick-your-own orchards, with tomatoes and other crops available to pick as well.

Many farms have roadside markets or pick-your-own operations, while others are wholesale producers who concentrate on selling apples through grocery stores and food distributors.
