The Farm at Walker Jones is excited about participating in two farmers markets in the city this summer. The first is right in the neighborhood at the NoMa Farmers Market. “The NoMa Farmers Market is a free neighborhood amenity that connects NoMa residents and workers to top local farmers in the region, while providing a relaxing community gathering place for neighbors to meet. Patrons can pick up dinner or buy groceries after work or on their way home, then head over to NoMa Summer Screen for outdoor films. Vendors provide a variety of fresh and organic produce, orchard fruits, meats, cheeses, prepared foods and baked goods, all from local farms. The market also features monthly cooking demonstrations from popular chefs in the District of Columbia.”
The market has a new location this year at the NoMa Metro Plaza at Second and N Streets, NE, adjacent to Marriott, Au Bon Pain and ATF. The market will be held Wednesdays, from May 30 to October 31, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
We have been having lots of fun there talking to neighbors, and thanking all the DCPS central office folks profusely for all their support (they are our best customers!). Please come by and see us, and pick up some fresh produce from our farm, picked just before market.
If you miss us on Wednesday, please head out to the Glover Park-Burleith Farmers Market in the Hardy Middle School parking lot at Wisconsin Ave & 34th Street NW (across from the Safeway) on Saturdays from 9:00 – 1:00. This market is sponsored by the good people at DC Greens, and there is always a lot of fun going on there – local produce, live music, food trucks, chef demos, bike clinics, hula hoops, face painting and more. Check out there website for calendar updates.
All proceeds from our sales at the markets go directly to getting the farm and food lab inside school ready for our great kids when they return to school in late August. Many thanks for your support!
