Who is Norman?

The History of Norman's Farm Market...
In 1987, the Norman brothers began what has amassed to a career in selling local fruits and vegetables along the roadsides of Montgomery County, Maryland.

The idea had been given to them by their uncle, Robert Kay, who twenty years earlier had operated his own stand out of the trunk of his car in Potomac. Steve Norman, the eldest Norman brother, home from his freshman year of college thought this a grand idea for a summer job and enlisted the efforts of his brothers, John & Jeff.

Throughout the 1990’s, along with a small army of talented high school and college students seeking summer jobs, and a fleet of a few of the ugliest used pick-up trucks ever assembled, the Norman brothers opened and operated as many as ten roadside markets in a single season.  This endeavor was named Norman's Farm Markets.

Over the next decade Norman's continued to forge relationships with many local farmers, customers, and food enthusiasts. They opened a gourmet market in Bethesda; a garden center and country store in Reston, Virginia, and farm markets in Potomac and Olney.

In 2006, we began our own farm in Woodbine, Maryland. This small 5 acre farm has served as an opportunity to experiment with growing unique varieties of vegetables, herbs, and flowers; to develop sustainable techniques of farming, and explore new trends. It serves as a central produce depot for other farmers that grow for our members and customers.

In 2016, Norman's Farm Market purchased a larger, 60 acre farm also in Woodbine.  This much larger property has permitted us to scale up our production and provide even more of our own produce to our ever expanding customer base.  We are excited to explore new opportunities for our farm and expand our customer base to Howard County, Maryland.  


Norman’s Farm Market is family owned and operated running three roadside stands in Montgomery County as well as a rapidly growing CSA, (community supported agriculture) Program. In 2001 John Norman met his wife, Eris, who along with Jeff Norman are the owners of Norman’s Farm Market. We are dedicated to championing the cause of the local foods movement and supporting local farmers.

As a Farmer you’ve got to train yourself to “make hay while the sun is shining”.  In season, you’re up at the crack of dawn, and work a long hard day, just about everyday.
