Brookland Farmers' Market 2011

Recommended Posts

Looking for delicious and nutritious fresh food that is conveniently available for purchase right in Brookland? Swing on down to the Brookland farmers' market, where there are great people, great produce, and a delectable variety of baked breads and treats. Located at the intersection of 10th and Otis, under the Michigan Ave bridge, the market is conveniently positioned right next to the Brookland-CUA metro stop on the red line.

At this small but thriving market you will find Mike and Esther Tabor of Licking Creek Bend farm with an excellent variety of fresh fruits and vegetables each week. From sweet corn to peaches, plums, tomatoes, basil, greens, garlic, apples, onions, carrots, berries and more, if you go home hungry you are the only one to blame. Mike is famous for generously doling out samples of their sweet-smelling peaches that will compel you to leave with a few in stow. And that is not all.

Walk on over a few feet to the stand set up by Upper Crust Bakery where your taste buds await the trip of a lifetime. Here you can choose from Challah, New York Rye, whole wheat, sourdough, Italian, Russian black bread, pain de capagne, lemon blueberry pound cake, or zuccini nut bread, just to name a few. Or perhaps you are interested in the mircro-roasted whole bean coffee, roasted right in D.C., for the freshest taste around. This renowned bread travels from Silver Springs to Brookland so you don't have to. It is time for you to take advantage of the convenience of these mouth-watering varieties.

Perhaps the above selection sounds great, but your sweet tooth is aching. Well, after a sample from Home-baked Sweets and Treats, your desires will be fulfilled. Pick up their famous cookies or cakes, and you will go home happy. The market is small but the tastes are mighty and that is what brings the customers back week after week. Join the fun and step out of the summer's sun by checking out the market under the Michigan Avenue bridge. You won't be sorry you stopped by!

See you on Tuesday, from 4-7 pm.
