Farmers Market SW is now accepting applications from quality food and farm businesses for the weekly Saturday market in SW DC. Opening April 21 and running every Saturday from 9AM to 1PM through November 17, the market offers baked goods, coffee, jams/jellies, prepared foods, pasture-raised meats & eggs, and locally grown fresh produce.  The farmer’s market runs from 9 AM to 1 PM.

Now entering its fourth market season, its second by DMM, the market attracts hundreds of weekly shoppers from the surrounding community and also features live music, performances, lawn games, childrens activity and more.  The rapidly growing area, including the Wharf, newly completed apartment buildings, and new area amenities over the past year are adding critical density -- and the market is poised to grow significantly with new resources and new partnerships. It's a nice neighborhood market that attracts families, young professionals and home-owning seniors in the area. The market also goes above and beyond to offer support to low-income shoppers through various voucher programs and a match for spending of federal nutrition assistance monies.
