The Kitzmiller Farmers Market at The Park is where the community meets every Friday from 4:00pm – 6:30pm. Kitzmiller Farmers Market is a producer’s only market with various products available each week. It’s a nice drive down there to a part of the county that many visitors don’t experience.

The Swan Meadow School Harvest Sale takes place Friday evening from 5:00pm – 7:30pm at the Pleasant Valley Community Center. Sounds like a nice time!

There’s a lot of music all around town this weekend. Please check out those events and others at our Upcoming Events section.

Did you know about the new federal law effective today (9/21) that gives consumers the right to place a freeze on their credit reports and temporarily or permanently remove the freeze without charge? With all the cyber crime in Maryland and nationally, this is good to know and Maryland’s attorney general has issued a press release on it with more information.

Looking for end-of-season deal? Our online marketplace has a few items for sale with price reductions!

Now in its fourth year, U.S. Cellular Community Connections program provides sponsorship support for youth organizations in local communities to earn up to $1,000.

The seasons are changing and the Department of Natural Resources has issued its first Fall foliage and festival report for this weekend. We can’t wait for the wonderful fall foliage in Garrett County and, of course, Autumn Glory.

The Maryland Department of Commerce has announced that it is offering a tax credit for investments in cyber security companies. This is a big industry nationally and in Maryland and I would love to see some more cyber-related jobs in Garrett County.
