Petworth’s Friday Community Market Ends October 26th; Columbia Heights & Cardozo-Shaw Markets Continue

Petworth Farmer’s Market Sets Up Every Friday Late Afternoon

The Petworth Community Farmers Market’s third season is now underway (every Friday, 3 to 8 pm through October 26th). Located along 9th Street, NW, at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Upshur Street, nearly 20 local farmers, producers, artisans and entrepreneurs will be selling and trading their goods and services. Here can be found a variety of produce, meats, eggs, prepared foods, books, art and more. Managed by a group of neighborhood volunteers, one of the goals is to create a sense of place within the Petworth neighborhood, and to this end, on the final Friday of each month special musical performances are featured. For more information, visit www.petworthmarket.org. (Earlier this year we reported on this community initiative; see “Petworth Community Market Announces Plans,” TheInTowner, February 2012, PDF page 1; available in our website’s Current & Back Issues Archive.)
