Here are some tips from the group and from foodsafety.gov , a site maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: +Look for produce that isn't bruised or damaged.

Dorothy Bass picked out a half dozen ears of corn, tugging back the green husks to be certain the kernels were fresh and free of bugs. With equal care, Bass, 91, selected cucumbers, peaches and nectarines, and then paid a vendor at the Pikesville Farmers' Market with cash -- and a check issued by the state. Bass is one of hundreds of county seniors who is taking advantage of a program that helps people with limited incomes obtain fresh, local produce. "We are supplying food to the nutritionally at-risk senior population and also promoting farmers -- everybody's happy," said Joan Schulz, who administers the farmers' market nutrition program for the Maryland Department of Agriculture.

It all started back on a Sunday morning in July 1977. The Farmers' Market spent a few years down on Market Place (oddly enough) before moving to its present location. Back then, the market season started in July. MayorStephanie Rawlings-Blakeand the Baltimore Office of Promotion will be on hand to celebrate the market's anniversary. They will also be announcing the introduction to the market of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and debit services. In addition to the program introduction, a new Welcome Center will be dedicated, which will serve as center of operations for SNAP and guest services for the market.

Visitors to farmers' markets would be able to sample and purchase beer made by small Maryland brew pubs under a bill that received final General Assembly approval Thursday. The House unanimously passed the measure, sending it to the governor. It is a stripped-down version of a bill introduced by Sen. Paul Pinsky, a Prince George's County Democrat. Where the original bill would have allowed any Maryland brewery to set up booths at farmers' markets, the amended legislation limits such licenses to far breweries or brew pubs that make fewer than 3,000 barrels a year.
