Under an overcast morning sky, Carole Ruppel carried basil herbs, fresh spinach, potatoes, cabbage and onions, and an apricot brandy pound cake, the latest haul from more than two decades of almost weekly shopping trips to her local farmers' market. For Ruppel, 68, of Westminster, the fresh produce, baked goods and potential Christmas presents at the Carroll County Farmers' Market's have led to hundreds of visits to the market's county Agriculture Center location since 1985. That year, she first heard about the market while scouting home locations in Carroll for a move from Catonsville.
