"I really enjoyed growing up in that area," he said.

He said he and his wife are looking to scale back their wholesale business and that the Catonsville market seemed like a great opportunity to do so.

"I know that Frederick Road corridor has traditionally been a good area for business," said Getka, whose brother still resides in Catonsville.

"Plus we are also trying to scale back a little on the wholesale and get a little more into retail," he said.

"With all of that combined, it seemed like a good fit," Getka said.

"If I run into anybody (that I know), that'll be an extra benefit," he said.

Cary said the chamber began the Sunday market four years ago after realizing that many of their members were unable to attend the Wednesday market. She said the additional day provides welcome variety.

"It's a whole different group of vendors, which I think gives the community different options," Cary said.

She also said it gives community members an opportunity to stay in Catonsville rather than travel to other markets including the Baltimore Farmers Market and Bazaar located under the Jones Fall Expressway.

This year, the Sunday market will feature only Maryland farms in order to encourage residents to buy local.

Cary said the chamber wants to encourage residents to "support farming in general."

"To keep the family farm alive and well in the state," Cary said.

The Sunday market will run every Sunday until Nov. 24 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 730 Frederick Road in the parking lot behind Friendly's.

Both events are rain or shine.
