Farmers Market Roundup: Nov. 8-14

I’ll confess to having a produce bias when it comes to talking about farmers markets since fruit and vegetables comprise most of my diet (those and chocolate, anyway). But there are plenty of producers who offer a wide variety of meat and poultry. If I’ve done my job shamelessly self-promoting, you’re already aware that a bunch of farms are selling Thanksgiving turkeys. This week, you’ll find even more local options for carnivores, including saucisson sec and lardo from Evensong Farm at today’s FreshFarm Market in Penn Quarter; duck quarters from Garden Path Farms at Saturday’s FreshFarm Market in Silver Spring; pork shoulder from Cedarbrook Farm at Sunday’s FreshFarm Market at Dupont Circle; and ground beef from Country Vittles of Critter Hill Farm at Wednesday’s Farmers Market at Maryland.

Details about these and other markets can be found through the link to the map below.
