Furnace Hills Coffee Company
Furnace Hills Coffee Company has been a staple at the Market for years, and opened its downtown shop in 2011. Dave Baldwin founded the coffee roastery on the premise of “special coffee for special people,” in honor of his daughter Erin.
“The shop was created as an opportunity for Erin to have a job,” says Baldwin of his daughter, who has Down syndrome. The company has been successful in its mission to provide both delicious coffee and a location for people with special needs to have a great place to work.
“She was just meant to come to us, and the coffee company is our way of giving back to her and the wonderful people like her,” adds Baldwin.
You’ll find coffee from Ethiopia, Honduras, and other faraway places, carefully roasted and brewed to perfection every Saturday at the market, both hot and over ice, with a special market blend also available for tasting and taking on the go.

Jeannie Bird Baking Company
JeannieBird Baking Company was founded by Jeannie and Bernie Vogel, who began offering eye-catching, mouthwatering, scratch-made baked goods at the Market in May 2011. From the start, the delicious sweets and savories were a fan favorite. The signature “butterhorns,” English muffins, granola, and even cinnamon rolls can be found at the Market every Saturday from 8am to noon. Customers also eagerly await the arrival of the lemony jam biscuits, filled with seasonal fruit or freshly made pastry cream. Jeannie and Bernie realized their dream of a brick-and-mortar bake shop in November 2014, when they opened the JeannieBird Baking Company at 42 West Main Street in downtown Westminster – to the delight of both Market customers and downtown visitors. Owner Bernie Vogel continues Jeannie’s legacy by leading his talented “Croo” to handcraft delicious offerings using Jeannie’s wonderful traditions, creative recipes, and impeccable use of locally-sourced products. JeannieBird Baking Company is open 7am to 5pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information, visit www.jeanniebird.com or visit JeannieBird Baking Company on Facebook.

Shepherd's Manor Creamery
Shepherd’s Manor Creamery is Maryland’s first sheep-milking dairy farm. The creamery produces artisan sheep cheese and other products, including luxurious soaps. “Sheep’s milk cheese is lactose friendly,” says Colleen Histon, owner of the Creamery. “It’s easier to digest than cow’s milk cheese, and is rich in protein and nutrients.”
Even more, the cheese is award-winning! Earlier this month, Shepherd’s Manor entered two of its cheeses into the American Cheese Society (ACS) contest. This competition, held in Denver, featured more than 2,000 entries – and Shepherd’s Manor placed first in the Tomae placed first in the aged over 60 days sheep’s milk category, and placed third with its Fetina in the sheep’s milk feta category. Look for the ACS stickers, soon to adorn these prized cheeses! The Creamery attends our Market every other Saturday. For more information about the Creamery, visit www.shepherdsmanorcreamery.com.
