Farmers Market Open at 14th and U!
The Farmers Market has officially opened for business on U Street. Come visit local farmers market located on the Reeves Center premises at 14th and U (2000 14th Street) every Wednesday from 4-7 pm.
The 14th & U Main Street Initiative is sponsoring the market in partnership with Community Harvest. We hope that this will become the permanent home for the market which originated last year through Manna CDC’s efforts at Temperance Row and then moved to the 13th & U Metro last year. Three local farmers will be there offering fresh produce, cheese and yogurts. This farmer’s market will be here every Wednesday from 4-7 through the end of October. See you there!
Community Harvest, a local non-profit with a mission to create a locally rooted, sustainable food system that meets the needs of both
underserved communities and small farmers in the DC region, has established a series of farmers markets through out the area through the Local Food Alliance Project.
Volunteers are needed to help us support and run the market, from helping to coordinate set-up and take down, running an information table, and passing out flyers and leaflets to raise awareness. If you are available please come by on Wednesday and sign up to participate.
