The Farmers Market is BACK!
While vaccine distribution seems to be expanding to include more people, the demand for food is still significantly high. Bread for the City is creating more opportunities for community members to have access to quality food. Our Farmers Market is now available to members of the general public while supplies last at 10 am. The second Friday of the month will be held at our Northwest Center and the fourth Friday of the month will be held at our Southeast Center.
“Just as spring is the season of planting and growth in farming, so it is with Bread for the City and the greater Washington DC community. The Farmers Market is a symbol of this renewed commitment to growth and planting in our communities. As we look toward the future and emerging from the pandemic, we are excited to begin this Free Farmers Market again. We look forward to offering fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as access to a variety of services. This last year has been hard, so we hope that community members walk away with full bags and carts, as well as full hearts and with their steps filled with hope,” said Trazy Collins, Food and Clothing Director at Bread for the City.
Bread for the City temporarily stopped the Farmers Market when the COVID-19 pandemic started in March. This was done to prevent people from congregating in a small area, which can increase the chances of someone getting the virus. Now, the Farmers Market is coming back and it will include some restrictions. Community members will have the opportunity to get access to fresh fruits and vegetables and it’s free and open to the community.
