August: Enjoy Summer Safely

Enjoy Summer Safely


This last month of summer is being celebrated with a month of "Enjoy Summer Safely" tips, resources, and great information about how to Enjoy Summer Safely in Maryland.

August is a perfect time to sample all the great Maryland fruits, vegetables, and food products available at local Farmers Markets. Buy fresh Maryland grown fruits and veggies and combine with good protein sources like fish for the makings of a healthy dinner, 

For desert, become an Ice Cream Trailblazer on Maryland's Ice Cream Trail (rocky road, anyone?). 

Check back often to this site during August for updates to learn about Maryland "Mosquitos and Ticks and Allergies, Oh My!" and how to protect yourself and your loved ones. 

And, you'll get ideas for how to host a safe socially distanced barbeque. ​

MD Farmers' Market Week Aug 2-8

Governor Larry Hogan has declared Aug. 2-8 as Maryland Farmers’ Market Week to coincide with the annual National Farmers’ Market Week celebration. but the celebration doesn't end there--shop Maryland farmers markets for the rest of the summer for fresh produce and other food products. The Maryland Department of Agriculture encourages citizens to participate by visiting farmers’ markets and buying local products. Find a farmers’ market near you by visiting the Maryland’s Best website. 

2020 Maryland's Best Ice Cream Trail

Did you know that Maryland has an Ice Cream Trail? Now in its eighth year, the Ice Cream Trail is designed to promote the state’s dairy industry, and has become increasingly popular, drawing participants from across the state and beyond. The Maryland Department of Agriculture is asking Ice Cream Trailblazers to collect a photo or selfie at each of the 10 creameries found here. Once participants have collected all of their photos, they can submit them with their name and contact information via email to icecream.trail1@maryland.gov. Participants are encouraged to share their progress on social media using #MDIceCreamTrail.

All completed email submissions will receive a “2020 Maryland’s Best Ice Cream Trailblazer” certificate. One lucky winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the creamery of their choice (that's a lot of ice cream!) and DVD copies of the MPT original series, “Maryland Farm & Harvest.” Visit MarylandsBest.net to learn more.
