FRESHFARM Markets to the Rescue

Posted in musings tagged , , , , , , , , , , at 11:42 am by silversprung

On Tuesday, I blogged about Ocean City Seafood in “A Wrong Turn Yields Big Fish” and I mentioned at the end that I hoped I could find quality produce in the area. Well, I found it: FRESHFARM Markets, a weekend farmers’ market located in downtown Silver Spring.

Even though it’s not their “regular season” right now, it’s open every Saturday in March from 10am-1pm.

It’s going to be hard to top hanging out with Carla from Top Chef at the Bethesda Farmer’s Market, but it looks awesome. Wait a sec… Chances of seeing Carla actually will increase. I was just searching for the Carla link above only to discover that her catering company, Alchemy Caterers, is actually located in Silver Spring. See you soon at FRESHFARM, Carla!

Season: April 18 to Dec. 19, 2009
Day and time: Regular season (April to Dec.): Saturdays, 9 am to 1 pm. Winter Hours (Jan. to March): 10 am to 1 pm
Location: Ellsworth Drive between Fenton Street and Georgia Avenue

    I see her at the Giant on E-W Hwy and Colesville Road, too.

    Welcome to the neighborhood! We just settled on our house in December.
