Eddie Richard with Richard’s Fruit Market
5 August 2016
We were joined in the studio today by Eddie Richard, owner of Richard’s Fruit Market, the oldest “country classic” open air farmers market located on the Richard’s fifth generation family farm in Frederick County. We talked about his marketing philosophy to only carry local products from the surrounding area along with his own crops. He shared with us the struggles many of our local farmers face due to daily weather changes. He told us about upcoming festivals and gave us a history of the 62 year old market.
Richard’s Fruit Market is located at 6410 Middle Road just a few miles west of Winchester outside of Middletown. They’re open Monday – Saturday: 8:30am – 6pm and Sunday: 10am – 6pm. For more information about Richard’s Fruit market, visit there website: http://www.richardsfruitmarket.com/
