DC Farmers Markets

We love our DC farmers markets. We love our VA farmers markets.

Here in the DC metro area we have an incredible amount of markets (among highest in people/markets ratio). There are multiple markets every day (except Monday) and they are open during your lunch break or in the evenings.

To help you find all these markets A Clean Life offers a brochure (link below) listing them by day/hour/metro.

Lower on the page you will find a comprehensive list of all markets in the DC metro region.

    • Adam – those are great markets and thanks for the link. I don't get out to those at all, but I want to.

      I am thinking of creating a greater northern VA focused brochure next. I will definitely have to tap into your knowledge of them when I do. – Steve

    • Jamie – wow what an incredible company. I must admit that I was turned off by their offerings. So much of the food was not seasonal or local (like bananas). In terms of health, its a good start to get people eating more fruits and vegetables. After that the challenge is to get folks eating local, seasonal, and fresh fruits and vegetables. That is after all the healthiest for one's own health and our environment's health too.

      I did see that you can customize your order, so I guess you can ask for only local items.

      On a personal note, I have always wanted to participate in a CSA like this. Only problem is that I love farmers markets and the friends I meet there and the sense of community. I may never be able to pull myself away from the market in favor of CSA.
