Mt. Airy Farmers Market My real estate partner and I had an enjoyable time last Wednesday at the Farmer's Market in Mt. Airy held at the Municipal Parking Lot in downtown Mt. Airy. The afternoon included entertainment furnished by Ed Caballero who also owns and runs the Vintage Coffee Shop. Ed and his partner sang and played acoustic instruments to the delight of the spellbound customers. It was hard to choose between the fresh fruits and vegetables and the delectable homemade baked goods. The local high school also displayed tomatoes and other vegetables that were ready to be planted in your own garden. Run by volunteers from Mount Airy Main Street Association, the Farmer's Market, which occurs every Wednesday from 3:30 to 6:30 should be put on your calendar as a regular event. It is a...

Vintage Coffee Shop--Mt. Airy The Vintage Coffee Shop in old town Mt. Airy is an amazing place.  As the name suggests, you can get any type of coffee you desire, whether your little heart desires a hearty cup of regular grind or the more exotic blended varieties.  If you own a laptop, the WIFI is free, unlike Starbucks, and you can relax in a separate lounge, complete with leather furniture and an oversized checkers game that comes with its own hand-woven mat.  Breakfast sandwiches are available along with an excellent homemade cinnamon bun with a generous portion of icing.  (Watch out!  These are a bit habit forming.) The owner has been known to entertain  on occasion for those lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time.  His name is Ed Caballero, and he tells me he has be...

Childcare in Mt.

Concetta's Deli in Mt. Airy, Maryland Among my more satisfying finds in Mt. Airy is Concetta's Italian Deli. Everything is made fresh daily, even the bread and they use local produce and meats as much as possible.  The results are incredible. They make a meatball sub that is to die for.  Anytime I am in the vicinity, I can't resist getting one. They roast the meatballs in the oven and then make this delectable tomato sauce.  You might want to try one of their authentic Italian drinks such as the fizzy orange or lemon, made with real fruit juice.  Their desserts are also very tempting.  Try the cannoli or homemade cookies.  Concetta's is located on Main Street in Mt. Airy.  One can eat in or carry out.  The décor is simple but cheerful; tomato cans filled with bright flowers adorn the ta...
