Baltimore Farmers' Market now a smoke-free zone

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts (BOPA) will announce today that the Baltimore Farmers' Market is now a smoke-free zone. Cigarette smoke, that is.

The change has the full support of the mayor and the Baltimore City Health Department.

"Self-policing and peer pressure" will enforce the policy for now, according to BOPA executive director Bill Gilmore.

The market and bazaar are located on Saratoga Street between Holliday and Gay streets under the Jones Falls Expressway.


What do you think about the change?
