MOM's Organic Market

Frederick, MD 21704
The event was in front of Mom's Organic Market. While there were no celebrities or politicians, we were able to talk to many ordinary people who previously had little exposure to EVs. Our list of registered models include Leafs, Volts, a Tesla Roadster, and a Honda Fit EV. We had a few surprise EVs show up including two Smart EVs. While the volume of folks going by wasn't very large, conversations tended to be more than just a minute or two. In several cases people talked to us for 15 minutes or more.
