Fells Point Farmers' Market returns on Saturday for its third season on Broadway Square.
The opening day of the market's season will include a tribute to Michael D. "Mick" Kipp, the bartender and spice-maker known affectionately, and widely, as "Mick T. Pirate." An empty stand will be set up at the market to honor Kipp, who died of a heart attack on Sunday. Market-goers will be able to leave tributes to Kipp in a memory book at the empty stand.
There are changes this season to the market.
There are new vendors, including Prigel Family Creamery, I Got Salsa, Big Round Bar, Forest Farm, Living Shabby Chic, Blue Hill Tavern. And the market itself is expanding across Thames Street to the Broadway Pier. The market takes place on the site of a market space that thrived in the 18th century.
Returning vendors include One Straw Farm, Hillside Meadow, Cedar Hill Farms, Mallow Crunchies and Haute Mess Kitchen.
