The NoMa Farmers Market at 1200 First Street NE is open every Wednesday from 3:00pm until 7:00pm, and offers local residents some wonderful choices for locally grown produce, dairy, meats and baked goods. There are chef demos most weeks, and the market aims to make its offerings more accessible to all in the community by accepting food stamps in the form of WIC (Women, Infants, Children) and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). This is a vibrant program that is drawing an ever-expanding crowd in this its first year of operation.
The Farm at Walker Jones is proud to announce that it will make its debut at the market this week, October 5. We will be bringing over spicy mustard mix, red Russian kale, dino kale, Swiss chard, gourmet baby lettuces, snap peas, pumpkins, collards, basil and herbs. There may even be a few of the beauties you see above still left. All produce was grown on our farm with the assistance of our great students, and all profits will support our urban gardening project. So stop by, say hi, and take home some beautiful produce that was organically raised in your own neighborhood.
