Farmers Market Roundup: Sept. 6-Sept. 12

We may still be sweating through hot summer days, but at least the farmers markets give hope of cooler fall days to come.

On the fruit side of things, shoppers can now buy a wide variety of apples and pears. This week, we’re seeing the first big crop of fall squash, available at today's FreshFarm Market in Penn Quarter, today’s FreshFarm Market by the White House, Saturday’s 14th & U Farmers Market, Saturday’s H Street NE FreshFarm Market, Sunday’s FreshFarm Market at Dupont Circle, Sunday’s Bloomingdale Farmers Market, Tuesday’s FreshFarm Market in Crystal City and Wednesday’s Foggy Bottom FreshFarm Market. More details on these and other markets in the map below.
