The Columbia Heights Farmers Market changes name, is back open again every Saturday


It's officially spring in Columbia Heights: you can wear short-sleeved shirts and the farmers market is back at the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza. Closed for the season, the Columbia Heights Farmers Market is open again, every Saturday from 9am-1pm. Get there earlier though, things start to run out at 1.

You might notice the name is different -- they were formerly the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, but most people I know just called it the farmers market, and they have since adopted that on their Facebook page. It's easier to say, that's for sure.

The market, if you haven't been, has a nice selection of produce, meat, cheese, juices and bread, plus some crafts from local artisans. There's sometimes other food offerings too, like a taco vendor last weekend and Pleasant Pops, the popular local popsicle maker. Grab a coffee at Coffy Cafe or Sticky Fingers and check it out.
