Farmers Market Roundup: June 14-20

Your options for sweet produce — cherries, berries, etc. — continue to abound this week at area farmers markets. If vegetables are more your thing, though, toss a couple of summer squash into your basket. You’ll find varieties at Thursday’s FreshFarm Market in Penn Quarter, Saturday’s 14th & U Farmers Market, Saturday’s Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, Sunday’s Bloomingdale Farmers Market, Sunday’s Takoma Park Farmers Market and Wednesday’s Foggy Bottom FreshFarm Market. You can even learn how to cook with it at Saturday’s H Street NE FreshFarm Market.

Only one market on our rolls, Friday’s Emmitsburg Farmers Market, is opening this week. You can find details about the other more than 140 in the region by clicking on the map below.
