Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate Halloween with us at the market! It was a perfect way to close out the season and we got to see lots of awesome costumes. Check out the photos and be sure to come see us again for the HOLIDAZE!
We had no idea that there were so many people who loved FSM just as much as we do! This season saw more than one photo session down on the plaza by the amazing Jonna Michelle Photography and we got to make some new friends who are just as much in love with Silver Spring as we are!
Katy and Josh are Silver Spring residents that we just met! They're from California but fell in love with Maryland and Silver Spring's vibrant community, and also SNOW that you just don't get in California. They had their engagement photo session at FSM this Summer and fell in love with one of Meekly Yours' "I like You!" hand lettered cards!
See more of their photo session here.
And then there were Bethany and Jarrod - a couple of Silver Spring residents that we met as market regulars and huge market and local biz supporters a few years ago. They are now also sometimes vendors! They are both on the board of The Pennyworth Shop and host a Pennyworth Annex at the market a few times throughout the season. Bethany and Jarrod held a super local Silver Spring wedding in early September and on their trek around the city, wound up taking some pre-wedding photos at the market (also with Jonna Michelle Photography)!
We're still holding out for a wedding to happen AT the market, so if that sounds like your jam, GET IN TOUCH WITH US!!
School is in session which means that Summer is officially over. Check out some awesome moments from our Summer on the plaza including our new Market Pup!
This Summer we hosted a stage for the Silver Spring Blue's Festival, played chess with Jamie Raskin, rocked a few afternoons away with Dupont Brass, debuted some awesome bookmarks for all your Summer reading, voted Kenai our new Market Pup and collected over 400 diapers for the DC Diaper Bank!
