HAMPSTEAD, Md. - Calling all Hon’s! The Hampstead Farmers' Market in Carroll County is celebrating "Hampstead 'Hon' Day" on Saturday, July 28 from 9 am - 12 noon. Vendors and visitors to the market are encouraged to dress as "Hons", complete with feather boas, cat-eye glasses, leopard print blouses, pearls, blue eye shadow, bubblegum, and the ubiquitous Aqua-net sprayed beehive hairdos!
"This is a fun way to celebrate the tradition of the 'Hon' that spilled out of Baltimore City into Hampstead in the 1950's and '60's," said market co-coordinator Marlene Duff. "Anyone who grew up in or near Baltimore then will instantly recognize the "Hon" persona, and many of us transplanted to Hampstead, so we wanted to bring some fun to the market by honoring this tradition."
The Hampstead Farmers' Market is currently in its third season, and is located on the carnival grounds of the Hampstead Volunteer Fire Department, 1341 N. Main Street in Hampstead. The market operates, rain or shine, on Saturdays, 9 am - noon, from June through September. The market features locally-grown produce, fresh cut flowers, plants, home-baked items, Angus beef, free-range chicken, turkey and duck eggs, goat's milk soap, and many items made by local artisans.
