Foggy Bottom’s FRESHFARM Market Opens Today!

Spring might actually be here, because today marks the return of our beloved FRESHFARM Market by the Foggy Bottom Metro stop. Now while you’re waiting in line to enter the station, you can browse through fresh produce, meats, and gelato. Check out our series of posts, Eatin’ Fresh, that highlight the individual vendors that bring us deliciousness (and fresh flowers). You can start shopping at 3 pm and the market ends at 7 pm.

FoBo Farmers’ Market Needs Volunteers

Looking for a way to help out with our favorite farmers’ market?  Check out this opportunity:

FARMFRESH needs volunteers to conduct 1-minute surveys aimed at market customers.

Two volunteers are needed for the Foggy Bottom market on Wednesday, 7/21, from 3-7pm.  Send an email to lauragenello@freshfarmmarkets.org if you’re interested.

Additionally, I guess next week would be a great week to go to the market if you love to answer survey questions.

Say Cheese! With Caprikorn Farm [Eatin' Fresh]

I got pretty excited last week when I heard there’d be a new cheese stand at the Farmer’s Market.  Caprikorn Farm has goat and cow milk cheeses, and they are taaaaaasty.

Cheese! [Eatin' Fresh]

According to the Foggy Bottom listserv, this week you can check out some awesome cheeses from a new stand this year.  Think: cheddar, gouda, Swiss and fresh chevre. Yummo!

Unfortunately it looks like the Cavanna Pasta stand won’t be at the market until further notice.

We’ll have a more complete post for you next week, after we get a chance to check out some of the goodies today.
