We are so very lucky here to have a farmers market somewhere in the area every day of the week (except, I think, Monday....even truck farmers need a day off).
Today from 3-7 p.m., there will be a big one down in Penn Quarter on 8th St. NW between D and E Streets, just a block or two from either of two metro stops (Archive/Navy Memorial on the green/yellow line or Gallery Place/Chinatown on the red line).
As Grandma Carew might say, if she were still here, "My teeth are set for fresh beets!!"
This market also has fabulous bread, gelato, flowers, and other delectable vegetables & fruits, plus dairy (liquids and cheese) and meat (pork, beef, and buffalo). Cookies and herbs, too! What's not to like?
