Spring Fever


We’ve been having a bit of a preview of warm weather of late, with just enough sunshine to start up that yearning inside me for Spring. It’s a bit chilly at this moment but there are rumors of a few days coming up with temperatures in the seventies.

It looks like Clarksville Commons is getting a jumpstart on the season by hosting a March Spring Preview Farmers Market today from ten am to two pm. 

Get an early spring preview of the farmers market season ahead!
Many of familiar favorite vendors will be there, as well as several new ones.

Confirmed vendors for the event include: 

Raw Blossom: handmade bodycare products 
The Salvaged Stitch: upcycled textiles 
Bike Werks: mobile bike repair shop
Apricity Flowers: flowers grown in Howard County
Serene Lavender Farm: locally grown lavender & lavender products
Wild Air Candle Co.: hand poured candles   
Krém au Krém, LLC: handmade bodycare products  

If you are looking for something to take the pre-spring chill off, I'd recommend coffee from Trifecto, although you also might want to check out the three adult beverage vendors on hand to see what they are offering:

Ellicott Distilling Company 
The Urban Winery of Silver Spring 
Twin Valley Distillers & Brewery 

Mary’s Land Farm is offering hands-on animal experiences today. They are billing it as “Cuddle and Interact with Baby Lambs, Cow Calves.” The cuddling aspect caught my eye, I have to admit. If I were not allergic to most animals I’d be there in a heartbeat.

This is a small group interactive activity. Groups of up to 12 people will walk with Kelsey on a tour of the baby animals and interact with them as well as a visit to the Springhouse.
$15-Ticket (1 person per ticket. Children 2 and under are free)

***Tickets are for 50 minute sessions and cannot be extended due to proper care of the animals.***

Clark’s Elioak Farm will be re-opening on Friday, April 1st. No fooling. They’ll also be hosting egg hunts between April 9th - April 18th.  New on the Farm is a Fairy Forest. Take a peek. Our family has many happy memories from visits to Clark’s Elioak Farm. I’m hoping I’ll be able to make it back over there this season.

Mark your calendars: the first free Community Concert at the Chrysalis this year will be a return of Maryland Winds  under the direction of Timothy J. Holtan. They’ll be kicking off this year’s season of with a program called Music of Stage and Screen: Songs of Hope. Be there for the downbeat on Sunday, April 24th, at 5 pm. Tickets are free but you need to register here:

A reminder: tomorrow is the fundraising event for Upcycled at Lost Ark Distillery from 1-4 pm.

Have a wonderful weekend!
