It's spring! Maybe not officially, but according to the farmers market, it is. The weekly market opens Saturday, April 16 and will be open every Saturday after that (the Wednesday markets won't open until June 1.)
The market has produce, meat, cheese, eggs, breads, flowers and plants, plus prepared food, coffee, crafts and also local performers. There are new additions this year too: salmon, veggie burgers, gluten free cookies plus tamales and a Latin bakery.
I often go even if I'm not looking to buy anything, tool around and get a sample or two, maybe a pastry or coffee and enjoy the day.
The market is open 9am-1pm on the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza, the triangle where Park, Kenyon and 14th meet. Here's their Facebook.
