Already with the vernal mercury rising, the fresh produce offerings at Eastern Market and Dupont Circle–open throughout the year–have greatly improved. I was psyched to see the return of of apples, tomatoes, brussel sprouts and various other goodies (yum, samples!) when I passed through Eastern Market on Sunday. This weekend sees the return of Anchor Nursery, Clear Spring Creamery, Wollam Gardens, and Next Step Produce to Dupont’s market.
