February is LOVE LOCAL month in Downtown Frederick!

From special events and one-of-a-kind experiences — to unique gifts and handmade chocolates, Downtown Frederick knows how to do Valentine’s Day right. See what’s coming up this week, and let the countdown to V-Day begin!

Love Letters for Local

We know that loving local happens all year long, but this month we want to shout it from the rooftops. As you’re out enjoying our beautiful downtown, stop and take a selfie with our new Heart on Market, or celebrate Love Local month with a Valentine’s Day classic — the Love Letter.

Let our small businesses know how much you love them! Write a thoughtful note to a downtown business (or two). We’ll take care of delivering it for you, and will even pick one letter a week and buy the author a $250 gift card to the business they love.

Drop off a hand-written love letter at one of our specially marked mailboxes, or write a virtual valentine online at

Mailbox Locations:
❤️30 N Market St
❤️12 N East St

Thank you to the Delaplaine Foundation for making this project possible!

Everybody Loves Chocolate

Find sweets for your sweetheart at one of Downtown Frederick’s chocolate shops: The Candy KitchenZoë’s Chocolate Co. or The Perfect Truffle.
