Market Mondays with 78 Acres

A "small" Family Business

78 Acres


78 Acres is a fruit and vegetable operation focused on local sustainable agriculture, owned by R. Matt and Mary Harsh in Smithsburg, MD.  Through partnership with Community Foodworks, 78 Acres sells fruits and vegetables at farmers markets across the city.

Hangry District's Michelle checks-in with Rachel Frick to learn about the ins and outs of a family run orchard and vegetable operation.


Market Mondays is a collaboration between Hangry District and Community Foodworks to highlight the stories and philosophies behind sustainably-minded growers and producers in the mid-Atlantic region. Find out what drives these important members of your local food system!

Stay tuned for a cooking demonstration at the end of September, using the products we sourced from Market Monday purveyors.
