Farm-to-Fork: Farmers’ Markets Help Midtowners Keep it Local
As Midtowners our dedication to all things local is unwavering and we can’t get enough of our home-grown restaurants, shops, parks and pubs.
Farmers’ markets are included in this list of local happenings that are often right up a Midtowner’s alley. Farmers’ markets and Midtown go together like Ben & Jerry, PB & J, Ross and Rachel.
With summer right around the corner, your favorite farmers’ market is sure to re-surface at a location near you in the next couple weeks.
Midtown folks young and old can often be found perusing through the farmers’ market at 8th and W streets under the freeway on Sunday mornings throughout the year. Fresh produce, meats and flowers from local farmers/vendors line the parking lot right here in the heart of our city.
To add to our enjoyment this summer, two new farmers’ market locations have been added to the line up. Look for one at East End Capitol Park (15th and L streets) on Thursdays and another at St. Rose of Lima Park (7th and K streets) on Fridays. These two new spots will officially open in June, and like most of the farmers’ markets, will continue through the end of September/October.
With so many farmers’ markets popping up during the coming months there is no excuse to not support local! Do your part and visit a farmers’ market near you!
