New Neighborhood Farmers Market

Here’s a clip from the Washingtonian about the area’s newest farmers market on 14th and U, Washington, DC.

Now every Saturday, U Street residents can find grass-fed goat, Breadline baguettes, and local veggies galore.

The U Street corridor is known for it’s pulsing bar scene, cute indie boutiques, and oft-packed restaurants. Food-shopping? Not so much. But that’s about to change tomorrow, when the 14th & U farmers market makes its debut.

According to a message from Markets & More’s Robin Shuster, who also heads up the Mount Pleasant farmers market, the 14th & U setup will bring together Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania farmers who only sell the dairy, meat, fruits, and veggies that they produce.

Tomorrow, Shuster promises sugar snap peas, two kinds of baby beets, three kinds of radishes, French carrots, asparagus, rhubarb, plenty of strawberries, salad mixes studded with edible flours, and more.  On the protein front, you’ll find grass-fed beef, lamb, goat, and pork. Quaker Valley will sell apple and cherry pies, and Breadline will be there with pastries and breads.

The sidewalk market, located at 14th and U sts., NW (in front of the Reeves Center), runs every Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM tomorrow through November 17.
