Farmers Market Roundup: Dec. 20-26

One of the many great things about farmers markets is the diversity of produce you can find — different varieties of fruits or vegetables you already know and love or something entirely new. This week’s bounty has unusual options, including kai-lan (Chinese broccoli) at Sunday’s FreshFarm Market at Dupont Circle and Red Maria potatoes at Saturday’s FreshFarm Market in Silver Spring. Details about these and other markets can be found via the map link below.
