Cooking Demonstration by Chef John Moeller

The Olney Farmers and Artists Market is pairing up again with the Sandy Spring Museum to sponsor Olney’s second winter market.  It will be located at the Sandy Spring Museum starting Sunday, January 12 Hours will be from 10am to 2pm.  The market will run through the last Sunday in March.

We have a bunch of new vendors (along with some old favorites).  Farmers include a new vendor — Cat’s Paw Organics from Union Bridge, MD (selling certified organic food items such as greens, fresh salad fixings, baked goods)  as well as Orchard Breeze (bacon, sausage, poultry, eggs, milk etc).  M and M Plants will be offering their beautiful flowers and house plants, as usual. Most of the farm vendors will mostly be located outside the museum.

Food Vendors include Colander Pasta (new vendor), and old favorites such as Bon Vivant, Le Printemps, Elk Run Winery, and Dalat Deli.  Please note that Tee will be in charge of the Winter Market this year.  Mouthwatering food selections include the finest in Vietnamese cuisine, moussaka, Belgian waffles, cupcakes, homemade chocolate, and fresh pasta.  Cupcakes Lounge will provide a large selection of breakfast items, along with assorted coffees, teas, hot chocolate, and hot apple cider.

Additionally about a dozen rotating artists, offering such items as handmade clocks and glass jewelry and beads, will be here each week, including some of our regular artists such as Angels and Anchors and BEADazzling Designs.  A new vendor, J. Freedom Co. will be selling soy candles.

Chef demonstrations will be scheduled for noon each Sunday.  Live music will be found in the octagonal room, starting at 11 am.

We’ll also have Craft demonstrations and special kids’ activities (including storytelling).  The kids’ crafts and arts area will be found in the back room, just as it was last year.

Volunteers are needed, so please contact the Museum if you can help out.  Don’t forget – SSL hours are available.
