Happy Winter! New Hours and Winter Farm Shares Available

53722_10151888642671483_135462779_oWe hope everybody had a great holiday and is keeping their food and health resolutions! We were busy doing some remodeling, and we hope you like the new look of our Market.

Due to neighborhood requests, we have added some organic, but not local items, to our shelves which will definitely help us all get through this winter. Let’s hear it for lemons and avocados, along with more items for our juicing customers like celery, carrots and ginger. If there is something you’d like us to bring in, please let us know.

We accept cash, checks, credit/debit and EBT.

Market hours as follows:

  • Wednesday – Friday  10am-6:30pm
  • Saturday  9am-5pm
  • Sunday  11am-4pm

Farm to Family Winter Farm Shares are still available in Washington DC and Richmond – we make it easy to get fresh, local foods and keep yourself motivate to be healthy! Our online system makes it easy. EBT accepted for farm shares.

We are also working on the non-profit — if you would like to get involved, please let us know!
