Farmers' Markets in DC

mselectra Aug 13, 2007 03:34 PM

Two related questions: First, I'm wondering about weekday farmers' markets, preferably in DC or Metro accessible, since I didn't make it to my usual ones over the weekend and am craving some fresh fruit. It seems like I've heard of ones pretty much every day of the week, but other than the one Thursdays near the Archives, I can't remember where or when else. Any others you all know of?

And that led me to wonder if there might be a sort of master's list somewhere of farmers' markets in the area?

Many thanks, and hope this is a question others will find useful.

    Google is a wonderful thing. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/...

      Although mostly accurate, that link was to a 2006 list.

        I don't happen to have it, but the Post had a similar article again this year.

      This is a good list of chowhound favorites:


      And a helpful list of vendors to keep an eye out for:

        Thanks for the links to these threads! (I don't know why they didn't come up when I searched, since they're so recent -- I guess I was being impatient and not used to searching ch.)

        FYI -- I do think that 2006 list is missing some (the new market at 14th and U on Sat mornings, eg), and it also seems like I've heard mention of other really small ones that I don't see there.
