Park View Farmers Market at Hook Hall this Sunday


Visit new vendors, listen to a live ukulele performance and compost updates. Join us this Sunday, January 26 from 9am - 2pm inside Hook Hall at 3400 Georgia Ave NW. 

Tim Seals will be playing his ukulele this Sunday between 10am and 1pm. Come check out his music!

BrainSnacs: This vendor joined us last week and due to their success, will be back this weekend. BRAINSNAC was started by three sisters with a passion for healthy food and a healthy lifestyle. They wanted to create something that would not only instill the values of eating well and reinforce the importance of treating one’s body right, but would also be super convenient.

Calvert Farm was unfortunately iced in last week due to the bad weather. This weekend is looking to be a beautiful weekend! They will provide a lot of vegetables and herbs! These will include arugula, beets, brussel sprouts, carrots, ginger, herbs, kale, lettuce green and red, mushrooms white, mushroom crimini, mushrooms shitake, onion red and yellow, parsnips, potatoes red and yukon gold, potatoes sweet, radish, rutabaga, salad mix, scallion, shallots, spinach, squash winter, swiss chard, turnips and more.

King Mushrooms will offer the freshest mushrooms from their farm on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Potomac Sweets was unable to make it last week and will attend the market for the first time this weekend. They will provide 32 % butter croissants made with butter produced in Pennsylvania, an expanded variety of specialty Belgian waffles and a wide variety of tea cookies.

Updates from the Compost Crew
We were excited to see the great demand for compost. As a result we ordered another bin. It will not arrive until next week, in time for the February 2 market. This weekend we will only have one bin and it will be first come first serve. Click here to learn what is acceptable compost.

Why compost? Food scraps in landfills generate methane, a greenhouse gas with global warming potential 84x more potent than C02. However, when converted to compost and applied to land, compost sequesters carbon and reduces greenhouse emissions. Learn more here.

Park View Farmers Market
Every Sunday from 9 AM to 2 PM
