Honoring “Market King” Marc Rey
June 24, 2023
Cheers and hollers, noise-makers and applause echoed all around the Market as everyone there celebrated Marc (Vernon) Rey’s 40-plus years of loving on the Market, its vendors and customers. Crowned with a silver tiara and carrying his new royal tee, he garnered well-wishes and congratulations in the morning at the Market, and then rode a convertible green Mini in Baltimore’s annual PRIDE parade that afternoon. Everyone is grateful that Marc’s NOT retiring, but will continue to remain as Community Liaison and, of course, as Market King.
Celebrating Waverly Book Festival!
April 29th, 2023, from 7am to Noon.
As a friend of the weekend-long Waverly Book Festival, the Market invited a local author, storyteller, two libraries and a women’s shelter to showcase their particular enthusiasm for reading, learning, caring and supporting neighbors. Staff from the Village Learning Place and the Waverly Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library focused on kids activities and appropriate books. Baltimore Outreach Services gave away glossy cookbooks that featured stories of the women and children supported by its shelter. Kara Mae Harris (@old_line_plate) queried visitors: “What are your festive recipes?” and Megan Lovely had all sorts of prompts to encourage passers-by to start a story, or plant a story seed, perhaps about the Market.
Giant Pumpkin – Weight Guessing Contest
October 29th, 2022
A big shout-out to more than 225 Market customers on October 29, who eye-balled, rocked, thumped, or hugged the giant pumpkin, attempting to discern its weight. Special thanks to farmer Billy Caulk, of Caulk Farms on the Eastern Shore, who grew the big guy. Jen Pahl took it to her squash-lovin’ hogs at Pahls Farm.
There were six winners: first prize went to Cora Owen, who pegged the pumpkin at 137#. Allana Iwanicki, Andy Stella, and Emma Yznaga tied for second place (138#); Ryan Ebrahimy (135#) and Sandra Young (139#) were each just two pounds away. They receive $50, $25, and $10 worth of Market tokens, good at any booth all year ’round. Congratulations to all!
“That Bean Guy”
Long-time and much appreciated vendor Tom McCarthy died of a heart attack on September 24 in Greensboro, Maryland. He’d spent the previous Saturday doing what he had done so very well for decades—scooping out the season’s peas and crowders and red and black beans to happy customers. His early seasonal offerings of asparagus, strawberries, and peas, followed by summer’s cantaloupes and tomatoes made for long lines in front of his stand long every Market Saturday. Tom’s sweet smile and wry candor with repeat customers, as well as his wonderful shelled beans, will be very much missed.

Vendor Billy Caulk had his prodigious hair cut as a donation to Locks of Love, which takes hair donations to make wigs for cancer patients. The hair stylist who cut Billy Caulk’s hair, Bob McClafferty is from:
Elements Natural Hair Care
105 Ware Ave
Towson, MD 21204
Billy did this in memory of loved ones lost to cancer. He hopes to call public attention to Locks of Love so that others may learn about donating.
