One of the rarest heritage breeds of hogs, the Black Hog is listed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservatory as endangered with fewer than 300 breeding hogs registered today. Compared to other breeds, the flavors of the Black Hog’s meat is exceptional. The lean micro-marbled meat is extra tender due to the breed’s short muscle fibers. This produces a tender, moist cut of pork with an exquisite and unique taste. We thought it was only fitting to choose this name to represent the fine quality of food and service that we offer at the restaurant.

For over 153 years, from the very beginning of Frederick County, Brewer’s Alley was a fixture in the social and economic landscape of Frederick. Ninety-five years after leaving Frederick, Brewer’s Alley is back!

We started Elegant Forever over 10 years ago based on the belief that there should be something in between fancy, over-priced shops and discount bridal outlets. There should be a place where brides aren’t pressured on time and limited on the number of wedding dresses they can try on. And being practical about your budget shouldn’t mean you can’t find a wedding dress that makes you look beautiful. Most importantly, a place where personalized service takes a front seat to the rushed and snooty service found at many bridal boutiques or bridal shops. We believe shopping for your wedding dress is the most important purchase of your life. And we feel fortunate to be part of your journey. We are a small, personalized bridal shop and we’re confident we can help you find the perfect dress!

Restored and preserved, the Everedy Square & Shab Row district offers relaxing shopping experiences in historic buildings spread over three blocks on East Street. The dwellings which comprise shops on Shab Row formerly housed tinkers, wheelwrights and other artisans who serviced the first stagecoaches traveling west on The National Pike (now known as US Route 40). The buildings of Everedy Square were once the home of the Everedy Company, where the Everedy Bottle Capper was invented and manufactured. The product met with national success following the enactment of Prohibition. Prospering for 50 years, The Everedy Company ultimately produced a line of kitchenware that is still used in many households today. The area was purchased and restored by Frederick businessman, Bert Anderson, in the 1970s and 1980s to produce the vital shopping and business district that it is today.

In 1998, Kim Firestone and his partner Kathy Wasley closed Café Delight, a little yogurt and sandwich shop they had been operating for five years in a Frederick, Maryland strip mall. They jumped into a bigger venture. Kim bought a restaurant in downtown Frederick called Donnelly’s and renamed it Firestone’s Culinary Tavern. The new restaurant opened in the spring of 1999 and, bolstered in the kitchen by the appointment of Chef Jack Walker, quickly grew in popularity to become an important part of Frederick’s increasingly dynamic and diverse restaurant scene. Seven years later, when the owner of an adjacent building decided she wanted to retire, Firestone bought the building and transformed it into a specialty food market named Market on Market (it’s on Market Street). Nine years after that, the next building up the street was to become the third member of the team. A little more shuffling was necessary, however. The Market moved into the third building, after a total makeover, and what had been the Market was transformed into an extension of the restaurant named The Raw Bar, featuring oysters and charcuterie in a completely remodeled facility. And that’s where it stands today, a long stretch from Café […]

Long, long ago, in the ancient Mediterranean, someone, some anonymous HERO, decided to smash up some chickpeas and BOOM. The art of eating hummus was born. (or is it birthed? Idk, but if we knew the exact date this happened I would celebrate it.) Hummus has been savored all over the world for thousands of years because of it’s versatile (and delicious) nature. In fact, hummus can fulfill almost all of your body’s nutritional needs and it’s super rich in vitamins + minerals. So after years of keeping the good stuff all to myself, I decided to just make more and share it with you guys, in hopes that it’ll help you live well and feel good. Just trying to keep it kosher with my body, mind and mother nature. Come hang out with me at a farmer’s market this summer so we can chill and eat hummus in the sun like our ancestors did thousands of years ago! Hand-crafted in Frederick, MD. Established 2016.

From just a narrow storefront, Starbucks offered some of the world’s finest fresh-roasted whole bean coffees. The name, inspired by Moby Dick, evoked the romance of the high seas and the seafaring tradition of the early coffee traders. In 1981, Howard Schultz (Starbucks chairman and chief executive officer) had first walked into a Starbucks store. From his first cup of Sumatra, Howard was drawn into Starbucks and joined a year later. In 1983, Howard traveled to Italy and became captivated with Italian coffee bars and the romance of the coffee experience. He had a vision to bring the Italian coffeehouse tradition back to the United States. A place for conversation and a sense of community. A third place between work and home. He left Starbucks for a short period of time to start his own Il Giornale coffeehouses and returned in August 1987 to purchase Starbucks […]

From the sidewalk, Stone Hearth Bakery hints at its European flair. During the summer, large pots bloomed profusely out front, amidst quaint sign boards announcing the daily specials. Along the side of the building, facing East Church, bistro tables with large umbrellas, amidst more gorgeous flowers, provided a place to retreat and enjoy a sandwich or sweet. But with summer gone and fall full upon us, the bakery beckons even more with hot, comforting soups, thick, satisfying sandwiches . . . and of course, the lure of fresh-baked breads and desserts.

Back in 1965, Fred DeLuca set out to fulfill his dream of becoming a medical doctor. Searching for a way to help pay for his education, a family friend suggested he open a submarine sandwich shop. With a loan of $1,000, the friend—Dr. Peter Buck—offered to become Fred’s partner, and a business relationship was forged that would change the landscape of the fast food industry. The first shop was opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut in August, 1965. Then, they set a goal of having 32 stores opened in 10 years. Fred soon learned the basics of running a business, as well as the importance of serving a well-made, high quality product, providing excellent customer service, keeping operating costs low and finding great locations. These early lessons continue to serve as the foundation for successful SUBWAY restaurants around the world.

“Much of the art of the past is not only decorative but profoundly meaningful. Its formal excellence complements that meaning, typically expressed by means of symbolic images. My own sculpture derives from this tradition. My preferred medium is bronze, and I cast in my own studio foundry in Annapolis using the cire perdue, or lost wax, process.”

“The idea for Pouring came about when representational life painting had become a bit boring, leading to some experimentation with wine and markers. Pouring enabled me to create whimsical and sometimes controversial images. Sometimes, I have no direction for what I expect the final piece to look like, and I discover as I go.”

Reconstruction brought immense social change to America in the aftermath of the Civil War. Explore how it impacted the citizens of Frederick, Maryland on a unique historic walking tour. As the Civil War came to an end and Frederick celebrated with fireworks and parades, the next chapter in the city’s history opened. As soldiers from Union and Confederate armies returned to their homes, they came back to a city wholly changed by war. Slavery had been outlawed, the countryside around Frederick had been raided and ravaged by war, and the city’s traditional political system overturned. Jake Wynn (NMCWM) and Emily Huebner (Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area) will tell the seldom told story of Frederick during Reconstruction and detail the lives of those who lived through the era that reshaped Frederick, the state of Maryland, and the entire nation. This tour will take place on the First Saturday in July at 3 PM and will begin in the museum lobby. This will be a “pay-what-you-please” program. Early registration is highly encouraged.
