Final Farmer's Market This Saturday

A massive THANK YOU to the Mount Pleasant farmer's market vendors and organizers. For nearly seven months a year they provide fresh food from nearby farms (and kitchens) at great prices. I've been 85% of the weeks this year? Something like that. Loving the collards and chard lately. And apple juice. Also made regular purchases of grapes, fresh baked vegan bread, arugula, cauliflower, beets, huge peaches and red potatoes. All grown at one of a dozen or so farms located within 125 miles of DC.

Along with a few new vendors, new this there was a bike repair station and clinic. Live music was played almost every week and generally Saturday morning was a good chance make that regular appointment to see friends who live in the neighborhood. And those who come here from outside of the neighborhood.

The Dupont Market, which is year round, will have to hold me over until next year. The Mount Pleasant Market runs from the first Saturday in May until the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Till next year.
