Flag Day “Drive-Thru” Market at St. Mary’s County Airport… Jets to Fly!
June 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Historic Sotterley’s Flag Day “Drive-Thru” Market at St. Mary’s County Airport… Jets to Fly!
Sunday, June 14th
10 am to 1 pm
This creative and inventive airport district will host Maryland’s “Most Innovative” drive-thru Farmer’s Market on Sunday June 14th from 10 am to 1 pm. Shoppers will stay in their cars and cruise a course of over 1.1 miles with over 18 vendors to comply with current Maryland COVID-19 and restrictions and reduce traffic delays.
There will be some special visual and aural displays for those driving at the airport. American flags will adorn the entrance and the vendors will adorn their displays with the Red, White & Blue. Visitors are also encouraged to wear and display flags on their cars. Additionally, all traffic will cease for a few minutes at noon for the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner. With good weather, a jet and other aircraft will also make a flyby.
The event is hosted by Historic Sotterley, Inc., a National Historic Landmark whose mission is to connect us to our history, to the land, to our common values, and to one another. “We love that we can be such an important part of connecting our region’s past to its present and even to its future with events like this” stated Sotterley’s Executive Director, Nancy Easterling.
We know that some of you will be hoping to find particular items from your favorite vendors. To ensure you come away with exactly what you want, you will have the opportunity to contact vendors in advance to place a pre-order. Once we have the full listing, vendor information will be available on Sotterley’s website at www.sotterley.org.

We hope to see you at the Market!
