Arbor Day is celebrated around the U.S. in late April, often by planting trees in communities.

Syphard said the seedlings, which were donated by the Forest Service, will be available "for as long as they last."

Wednesday market coming

The town of Bel Air is the primary sponsor of the Saturday market, and town officials are working with community partners to put together a Wednesday market this year, scheduled to open May 8 in the town's Main Street parking lot at 33 S. Main St.

Syphard stressed the Wednesday market is not related to the Saturday market.

"There's no connection between the Bel Air Farmers' Market on Saturday, versus the downtown market on Wednesday," he said.

The Wednesday market, called the Marketplace on Main, is sponsored by the town, plus the Bel Air Downtown Alliance and the Mill of Bel Air on North Main Street. It will be held in the lot between the Sheriff's Office headquarters and the Main Street Tower restaurant.

The Wednesday market will be smaller than the Saturday market, with space available for about 12 vendors, Syphard said.

He said organizers expect to know the "final lineup" of vendors in about two to three weeks; it should include produce growers, plus food, and arts and crafts vendors.

"It's a farmers' market, but there's going to be a vendor component that is food related, consumables on site as well as carry off," Syphard explained.

The market will be open from 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Sept. 25. Syphard can be reached at 410- 879-9500 for more information.
