Black Rock Orchard
"Our livelihood is based on farmers markets. Black Rock Orchard has sold all of our fruit at area farmers markets since 1978 (When Takoma Park, MD and Baltimore opened the first area producer only markets.). The direct contact with customers makes it possible for us to support one family and two full time workers. Customers at longstanding markets like Falls Church are willing to understand the idiosyncrasies of each season and put up when the less than perfect appearances in fruit if it tastes good."
