MLK weekend in the Capital Region

January 10th, 2015 by Maryland B&B Association

Guests visiting our capital region B&Bs, Pleasant Springs Farm or Morningside Inn, are just a short drive away from two unique events taking place during MLK weekend.

Every Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm, Gaithersburg hosts their Main St. Farmers Market. Located at 301 Main St. in downtown Gaithersburg, this farmers market provides the freshest local winter produce as well as meats, breads, crab cakes, honey, jams, and hot beverages.

Orchid Cellar Winery in Middleton, MD also offers a unique activity for wine enthusiasts or a couple just looking for something to do. Orchid Cellar Meadery & Winery, located between Frederick and Hagerstown, has a special barrel tasting and tour of their scenic winery. Two tours go off daily from Saturday through Monday, one starting at 2 pm and the other at 4 pm. Tickets are $12 each and includes tastings pulled right out of the “French Oakies”, which are the new Orchid Cellar barrels. 21 and over to drink or taste but children and teens are welcome on the tour.
