The 2017 season is starting soon!

We’re excited to let everyone know that in addition to returning to the Hollywood College Park Market on Saturdays starting April 22nd, we’ll also be at the FRESHFARM Foggy Bottom Market in DC on Wednesdays starting April 26th!

We will have yummy spring salad mix and pea shoots, hearty greens like bok choy and kale, seedlings, and maybe some radishes depending on weather over the next few weeks. In May we’ll be adding more greens, spring onions, turnips, and beets. Check out the Our Products page for more info on the markets and what’s growing throughout the year.

Looking forward to seeing you at market!
