FreshFarm Markets will open its 13th outpost today at the new CityCenter DC development near Chinatown. The FreshFarm Market at CityCenter DC, at the Park at CityCenter DC, will run each Tuesday (through October) from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
This is the second lunch-focused market opened by FreshFarm. Those familiar with the FreshFarm market near the White House know what to expect: A wide variety of fresh sandwiches and other prepared foods from chefs and vendors who adhere to the FreshFarm ethos of using locally sourced ingredients.
Organizers promise that the new market "will feature more ready-to-eat foods than the Penn Quarter market," in addition to produce, cured meats, baked goods and more. Vendors expected to have stands in the market include Urban Butcher, Pinch Chinese Dumplings, Cowbell Kitchen and Frenchie's, Erica Skolnik's bakery that colleague Tim Carmen wrote about this morning.
