Farmers market roundup: Sept. 20-Sept. 26


Boiled Cider (Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post)

Lots of Washington area farms and orchards make cider. Some use a mix of apples, while others are single-variety. Pick up a jug at today’s FreshFarm Market by the White House, Saturday’s Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, Saturday’s FreshFarm Market in Silver Spring, Saturday’s H Street NE FreshFarm Market and Sunday’s Bloomingdale Farmers Market. Find the details about these and other markets via the link to our map below.

If you go a little too crazy buying cider, consider turning it into Boiled Cider, a traditional New England syrup.When saved in sterilized jars, boiled cider will keep indefinitely in the refrigerator.
