Took the grandkids up there on Sunday and they were fascinated at the different colors and sizes of tomatoes, eggplants, and stringbeans. Truly a teaching moment for them. They even ate a nectarine for the first time and loved it, quickly going thru my bag of 6! After buying, we wandered down to the playground (1 block away) so they... 更多
They have the basics covered: veggies, fruits, flowers, baked goods, cheeses, eggs, honey, herbs...All the stands are well displayed and do a brisk business. Nice quality of goods, and good vendors. The locals love it, and it turns into a big party with lots of small kids, dogs, neighbours chatting. However, they only can house it on one block of... 更多
I love going to the Takoma Park Farmers Market. The variety of fruits, vegetables, eggs, cheeses, meats and crafts is always wonderful. The people are friendly and everyone seems to be out for good buys and a good time.
Even in the winter there are plenty of vendors with choices for every menu. Farmers offer apples, root vegetables and some magnificent mushrooms! The Cherry Glen Goat Cheese Company sells Monocacy Ash, Monocacy Gold and Monocacy Chipotle (all named for a local river in Maryland); other stands sell local organic meat products, eggs and bakery goods (from Atwaters in Baltimore).... 更多

Because it requires the farmer to be local, you see and smell the seasons change in what is available. On a sunny day there is nothing like looking over the colorful mushrooms, apples, flowers and... 更多
One of the best parts of the TP farmers' market is the warm environment. Whether you're running into friends or chatting with strangers, it feels very much like community. The produce, cheeses, meats, mushrooms, and -especially- Atwater's baked goods are all delicious. Only drawback is it can be pricey. But they have a great program for people using WIC: they... 更多
This neighborhood gem is open every Sunday- year round. This is the peak time to go as stands are overflowing with melons, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, and peaches. You'll find stands selling bread, cheese, meat, eggs, and wine as well. There is something for everyone- don't miss it.
So nice to get away from bureaucratic, cut-throat downtown Washington for some wholesome, down to earth fun. Great veggies and fruit all summer, plus mear, cheese, bread - all local.
Great greens in spring and about 15-20 farmers market stalls are always present. Fresh meat, yoghurt, bakery items and eggs (sell out in the first hour) along with garden plants and fruits/veggies.
