The Milton Farmers Market will continue to bring visitors everything they need for their table, freezer or pantry from 25 new and returning vendors. This year the market moves to Dogfish Head Brewery and meets from 3 to 6 p.m., Fridays beginning April 22.

This season, Alaskawild Seafoods offers wild-caught salmon and smoked salmon, cold-water cod and halibut. Fresh oysters are available at Chinky Salt Oyster Co., where market patrons can purchase the environmentally harvested bivalves by the bag or one at a time, shucked for consumption on site. Reid Angus brings dry-aged, all-natural Black Angus beef, with selections ranging from tenderloin filets, roasts and steaks, to juicy burgers. Looking for all-natural turkey? TA

Farms makes its premier poultry available at each week's market, along with farm-raised pork, lamb and beef. Try the bacon.

The Milton Farmers Market is all about fresh produce. Even in the early growing season, patrons will enjoy a wide selection. Visit TS Smith for a range of tempting offerings, Baywater Greens for hydroponic greens, Nash's Veggies for organic kale and more, Totem Farms for microgreens and fresh basil, La Bella Farms for freshly picked produce and cut flowers, Evans Farm for just-harvested produce and Stag Run Farm for veggies and honey.

Who doesn't like an occasional sweet treat? Nana's Delights will tempt market patrons with delectable home-baked pies and cakes; Pasqualini's Bakery brings an array of scratch Italian pastries, donuts, and sticky buns; and Blotto Gelato offers gelato, sorbet, sherbet and ice cream, all flavored with adult beverages.

Additional food vendors will help round out shoppers' meals, including Old World Breads with artisan loaves and rolls baked in the Old World European tradition (along with soups and quiche this year), and Captain Kirk's Gourmet Galley offering a huge assortment of specialty-flavored Pappardelle pastas. New seller Ada's Picnic will offer classic picnic sides of potato salad, pasta salad and coleslaw, and specialty items will be available from Backyard Jams and Jellies and Eastern Shore Kettle Korn.

Lavender Fields and Heatherscents Handmade Soaps each offer patrons a range of high-quality, handcrafted personal products with a focus on delectable scents.

Market patrons shopping for beverages will enjoy low-heat pasteurized fresh milk available from Rehoboth Dairy, sold in glass bottles at the Rustic Acres tent. New vendor Pureblend LLC features an array of USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified teas.

Local favorite Kent Schoch and Slinging Daisies will take the mic for some high-energy tunes April 22. And both Abbott's Grill and Po' Boys Creole provide meals for take-away or on-site consumption.

Friendly dogs on 6-foot leashes are always welcome at the Milton Farmers Market, every Friday at DFH from 3 to 6 p.m. There is plenty of free parking for shoppers.
