Farmers' and Flea Markets Make for a Swell Weekend

Late fall scene at Mount Pleasant Farmers' Market
Finally...... the farmers' market..... has come back..... TO MOUNT PLEASANT! Yes, tomorrow is the first day of the best farmers market in the city, the Mount Pleasant Farmers' Market. Happens every Saturday morning, now until November 19. I can't wait. I still remember the last items I bought in 2010: a  few pink lady apples and a quart of apple cider. 

What will I get tomorrow? Who knows, just want to be there thinking about the start to real spring in DC, a beautiful time of year. The Mount Pleasant Farmers' Market is tomorrow May 7, from 9:00AM until 1:00PM. The location is Lamont Park at the corner of Lamont and Mount Pleasant Sts NW. See you...

Also tomorrow, just 4 blocks from the Farmers' Market, is the Positive Force Punk Rock Flea Market and Skill Share. That's a mouth full, but basically, it's like it sounds: a market made of DIY vendors and talented folks willing to share their knowledge and skillz with you (word is Warm and Fuzzies will be there!). Afterwards, a show with three DC bands: Deleted Scenes, Foul Swoops and America Hearts (I believe from Mt P?). The flea and skill share start at 12:30PM and the music starts at 2:00PM. The location is St. Stephens Church at 1525 Newton St NW (at 16th). That's two awesome events on one day. Have a great weekend!
