Tag Along Alpacas (website underscored) is still hosting visitors by appointment; everyone must wear a mask no matter their age. We are participating in the Chestertown Farmer’s Market every Saturday from 8am to 12pm through Christmas and after that we will set up at the farm (typically we are at the market September through December). The market is now operating on two blocks of High Street and our booth is directly across from Chesapeake Bank (the street is closed to traffic during the market). The Chestertown Farmer’s Market continues all year, however, after Christmas and until March it has limited vendors participating.
