Normanís Farm Market

Locale ID MD9015

Run by Jeffrey Norman


About

In 1987, the Norman brothers began what has amassed to a career in selling local fruits and vegetables along the roadsides of Montgomery County, Maryland.

The idea had been given to them by their uncle, Robert Kay, who twenty years earlier had operated his own stand out of the trunk of his car in Potomac. Steve Norman, the eldest Norman brother, home from his freshman year of college thought this a grand idea for a summer job and enlisted the efforts of his brothers, John & Jeff.

Throughout the 1990ís, along with a small army of talented high school and college students seeking summer jobs, and a fleet of a few of the ugliest used pick-up trucks ever assembled, the Norman brothers opened and operated as many as ten roadside markets in a single season. This endeavor was named Norman's Farm Markets.

Over the next decade Norman's Farm Markets continued to forge relationships with many local farmers, customers, and food enthusiasts. They opened a gourmet market in Bethesda; a garden center and country store in Reston, Virginia, and farm markets in Potomac and Olney.

In 2006, Norman's Farm Market began their own farm in Woodbine, Maryland. This small 5 acre farm serves as an opportunity to experiment with growing unique varieties of vegetables, herbs, and flowers; to experiment with sustainable techniques of farming, and to develop new trends. Also it serves as a central produce depot for other farmers that grow for our members and customers.

The current state of Normanís Farm Market is a streamlined family owned and operated farm business running two roadside stands in Chevy Chase and Bethesda as well as a rapidly growing CSA, (community supported agriculture) Program. In 2001 John Norman met his wife, Eris, who along with Jeff Norman are the owners of Normanís Farm Market. We are dedicated to championing the cause of the local foods movement and supporting local farmers.
