Information on:

Takoma Park - Takoma Park Farmers Market


History:

Organized in 1982, the Takoma Park Farmers Market was the Washington area's first Sunday market and an early pioneer in the "producers-only" movement.

When the market opened, in mid-summer 1983, it featured about a half dozen farmers and only partly filled the north side of Laurel Ave. Customers were few and sales were modest. Today almost two dozen producers line both sides of Laurel Avenue, and the market attracts thousands of people weekly to shop at its burgeoning stands.

Along the way, the market has greatly expanded the range and availability of the products it offers-from heirloom tomatoes and variegated sweet corn to free-range eggs and exotic bouquets.

But some things, happily, have remained unchanged. Two of the original vendors continue to sell at the Takoma Park Farmers Market: Potomac Vegetable Farms and Twin Springs Fruit Farm. 

Market Hours:

Year Round
Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Location:  Laurel Avenue, Takoma Park

Everything was yummy. Great variety of bread, vegetables, cheeses. Although... Huge variety of apples was strange since most were neither very tasty nor exotic. Honeycrisp variety that you can get at Kroger was the best. (maybe better than the Kroger version).

Small but great selection of high-quality local veggies, fruit, bread, eggs, preserves and some meat.

My favorite market in the area. I went in the last hour on a cold and rainy day, and there were still many vendors. I really enjoy that most of the vendors sell non prepared products. Some markets are heavy on the crafts and prepared foods. Not this one, it's all about farmers!
