CALIFORNIA, Md. – Looking for the perfect ingredients and snacks for your Holiday party? Historic Sotterley is proud to host the next installment of the Airport Farmer’s Market in partnership with the St. Mary’s County Regional Airport (also known as Captain Walter Francis Duke Regional Airport). This market will take place on Saturday, December 18th from 9:00 am—1:00 pm. The Farmer’s Market will feature fresh & local food and products and a special visit from Santa, who will fly in at 11:30! 

The market will take place in the Airport Terminal building located at 44200 Airport Road, California, Maryland. Located in   St. Mary’s County, the airport is about four miles northeast of the central business district of Leonardtown.
The market will be held indoors, and we will follow all current COVID-19 protocol. Shoppers can wear masks if desired and we request that everyone practice social distancing from others while in the market area.
This Airport Famer’s Market embraces and showcases the rural characteristics of Southern Maryland while highlighting the role that our region has played in developing our nation’s air and space technologies. One of the most unique characteristics is that people can fly their plane into the airport from other parts of the region to buy goods and then fly home!
This market will feature great additions to your Holiday dinners and parties like baked goods and breads, locally farmed oysters, Maryland sheep cheese, local honey, eggs, aged oils & vinegars, pickles, goat milk soap, chocolates, cakesickles, spices, local beer, and local distillery offerings as well as offerings from Visit St. Mary’s for ideas for your family gathering. 
Vendor listing will be available as the event gets closer on Sotterley’s website at

We hope to see you at the Market!
