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.

Frederick County’s original brewpub. Brewer’s Alley is proud to continue the long history of beer making in a town known for its deep appreciation of fine fermented spirits. The name itself is taken from a page of history. Brewer’s Alley was located on what is currently South Court Street. Beer Production ceased in 1901 when a large fire consumed the brewery of John Kuhn, who was the last in a long line of brewers to occupy space along the banks of Carroll Creek. 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!

Welcome to Charlotte’s Cottage Quilt Shop. Our shop was named after two favorite Charlottes; my mom and my grand-daughter. Both of them love fabric. My mom never saw a border print she didn’t love. My grand-daughter loves fat quarters to use for doll blankets for her babies. We have recently moved our shop to Shab Row’s beautifully restored 19th Century buildings in Historic Downtown Frederick, Maryland. Many of the important battles of the Civil War happened very close to our door.

Who doesn’t love a quilt that tells a story and will become a treasured heirloom in your own family.

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!

Everedy Square & Shab Row is Downtown Frederick’s largest cluster of specialty shops, eateries and services housed in beautifully restored 19th Century buildings in historic Downtown Frederick, Maryland. 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 […]

We simplified the process, and Freesia and Vine was born!

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.

We also have a wide range of styles from Early American, Mission, to Today’s Modern. The builders we work with use traditional joinery techniques that have proven the test of time. We encourage you to open the drawers and examine each piece in our store and in others. You will quickly see the difference. Every store advertises quality but when it comes down to construction most stores just don’t compare to the high quality you find at Little’s Furniture. We have a few competitors but most do […]

Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better. It was true when the first Starbucks opened in 1971, and it’s just as true today. Back then, the company was a single store in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market. 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 […]

DISTRICT Arts presents “Moments,” an exhibition of watercolor and fluid acrylic paintings by April M. Rimpo Rimpo’s favorite quote on art is by Ivan Lissner: “The secret of great art – to rob the moment of its impermanence.” Her exhibition titled “Moments” reflects that quotation. Part of telling stories with April’s art is conveying the emotional response to the subject. She sees beauty everywhere she travels, be it to a large city, a small U.S town, or somewhere abroad. April feels a piece is complete when the mood she wants is achieved and the story shines through. Real success comes, however, when others tell her the story they see in the painting.

Man the Cannons! We’re taking you back through time to when the roads were dirt and soldiers marched through the streets of Frederick. The Civil War was tough on the nation. But most people don’t think Frederick could have been the center of it all. But, for a while, it was. Rain or Shine. No Walk ins

“Sweet Dreams” & Artist Reception w/ Karen Peacock Meet Karen and chat about her exhibition on display from 5-8pm during the Artist Reception! Pajama Days contains 16 works made up of vintage sleepwear, drawings, paint, book pages, and more. “This project was started during the COVID 19 lockdown with what was on hand. The title reflects the fashion choices of that time,” says Peacock. These mixed-media works can hang separately or in site-specific modular groupings. Also on view is National Treasures: a subjective selection of 25 great Americans.

“Sunlight & Water” & Artist Reception w/Tom Semmes Meet Tom and chat about his exhibition on display from 5-8pm during the Artist Reception! “Sunlight & Water” features Tom Semmes’ recent oil paintings on canvas or archival paper. The works reflect his long-term interest in the nuances of light and the changing seasons of both urban and rural settings. Most of the paintings were started en plein air and finished in the studio. Semmes is inspired by his home in downtown Frederick, Maryland, as well as his travels in France and Italy. Rich colors and expressive brushstrokes define his landscapes. The show features a series that captures the view outside of his studio window: “They are,” says Semmes, “a record, like Monet’s haystacks, of one subject under changing conditions.”

September Featured Artist: Doug Moulden Doug Moulden is showing his new, never before seen works! These are a series of paintings that explore the parts of the world that both fill him with wonder yet give him a feeling of disquiet. He uses an additive approach when constructing the paintings, using many different materials that are glued to panels. Painting only occurs after the panels are constructed and is a more intuitive and less structured process than the actual construction. One of Doug’s goals with his paintings is to address the title of the show, “Monachopsis: The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.” Visit eastsideartistsgallery.com for more information.

Walk in the footsteps of doctors, nurses, soldiers and civilians who cared for 8,000 wounded soldiers in Downtown Frederick Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until October, docents from the National Museum of Civil War Medicine will explain how Frederick became “One Vast Hospital.” Arguably the most trying moment in city’s history came after the Battle of Antietam in the fall of 1862.

Masks are required throughout the tour and we request that you practice strict social distancing. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis. With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many […]

Multi-Grammy award winning blues rocker John Hiatt (“Have a Little Faith in Me,” “Slow Turning”) and acclaimed bluegrass singer-songwriter Jerry Douglas (“Gone to Fortingall”) join forces to perform the greatest hits from their distinguished careers and music from their upcoming release Leftover Feelings. “All the Lilacs in Ohio” is the first video released from John Hiatt with The Jerry Douglas Band’s forthcoming album, Leftover Feelings, available May 21, 2021. This project and video were recorded in Historic RCA Studio B, continuing the studio’s legacy as a “temple of sound,” and creating documentary resources for use by the nonprofit Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum.

frederickpride.org The Frederick Center is postponing its Frederick Pride 2021 celebration, originally scheduled for Sunday, October 3, 2021, to Saturday, June 25, 2022. In consultation with the Frederick County Health Department, The Frederick Center has assessed that the risk to public health is too high to risk holding a large-scale event during a resurgence of the COVID pandemic and, specifically, the more transmissible deadly delta-variant. The Frederick Center will continue operating its peer support programs, including Youth Group Jr., Youth Group, Young Adult Group, Transgender/Gender Non-Conforming Group, TransFamilies, TransTeens, TransPartners, Healing Pride, and LGBTQ+ Recovery. Additionally, The Frederick Center is developing some smaller-scale events over the next few months, both outdoors and indoors, allowing folx to gather in a safe environment. The Frederick Center’s Mission: The Frederick Center exists to support and advocate for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) people and our families so we thrive, accepted and affirmed, in the broader Frederick community. More details are coming. Check back to frederickpride.org for more information.
