Keep these new Washington area farmers markets in mind when you’re shopping for local produce. They’re included in our online listings (for the District, Virginia and Maryland) and our interactive map.

Cleveland Park Farmers Market

9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sundays, year-round beginning May 13

This market is sponsored by the Cleveland Park Citizens Association. Market manager Gloria Garrett, who also runs the Palisades Farmers Market on Sundays, expects about 14 vendors each week, including Gonzalez Produce, Kuhn’s Orchard, Les Caprice de Joelle, Piemonte Biscotti, Bread Haus, Simply Delicious Desserts and Smith Family Farms.

2700 block of Ordway Street NW. 202-607-6033 (Gloria Garrett); ggcasacucina@aol.com.

Westover Farmers Market

9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sundays, May-November

Food-to-Table Inc., made up of residents in the Westover neighborhood in Arlington, worked for more than a year to make this farmers market happen. Chair/market manager Rob Swennes expects to carry about 15 vendors. For now, he says the market will be set up on a blocked-off section of North McKinley Road near the Westover Library; a plaza in front can’t quite accommodate the width needed for vendors’ tents and passage.

Vendors include Atwater’s Bakery, Baguette Republic, Black Rock Orchard, Fertile Plains Meats, Greenstone Fields, Gypsy Hill Foods, Lois’s Produce, Ole Pioneer Kitchen, Smith Family Farm and Twin Springs Fruit Farm.

1644 N. McKinley Rd., Arlington. 703-405-8232 (Rob Swennes); westoverfarmersmarket@hotmail.com.

Pike Central Farm Market

9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays ; 11 a.m.-3p.m. Thursdays, May-November

From the folks who bring you the Bethesda Central Farm Market, this will be held at the site of the old Silver Diner on Rockville Pike. Pike Central is planning to host a farm market dinner in the fall.

Spokeswoman Debra Moser expects 35 to 40 vendors, including Sweet Teensy cupcakes; Cottingham Farms (from the Baltimore area); Northern Neck berry farm; Bear’s Honey Pot; Kilmer’s Farm Market fruits and vegetables; Clembrose Organic vegetables; Farm House Flowers and Plants; and several from the Sunday market.
