UDC Farmers Market back for the summer

As summer begins in the district, so does one of our favorite summer traditions: farmers market season.

Now until Nov. 25, the University of the District of Columbia will host a farmers market each Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside the David A. Clarke School of Law. The market opened on May 20 and will be conveniently located across the street from the Van Ness metro stop.

The National Latino Farmers & Ranchers Trade Association will sell local produce, eggs, fish, baked goods and more. Some of the returning farmers this season will be G Flores Produce, Apple Valley, Valencia Produce, Cleckner Farms, Sergio Lopez and Jose Lopez.

The market will also feature weekly “Made in D.C.” vendors. Some of this season’s returning vendors are Malvern St Goods who sells greeting cards and postcards, Yinibini Baby,who sells baby clothes and accessories, and Art+Art, who sells modern abstract art and handmade jewelry.

Vendors accept the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and the Women, Infant and Children Nutrition Service.

Van Ness Main Street will also host “Music and More at the Market” with musical performances throughout the market season. Brian Coyne, a singer/songwriter from Bethesda, MD will be performing on his acoustic guitar for the June 3rd market. All music performances are free to the general public.

Come support the National Latino Farmers & Ranchers Trade Association and local D.C. vendors by checking off your grocery list with fresh and local items.

When: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
