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 CreameryWollam Gardens, and Next Step Produce to Dupont’s market.

Very soon all other varieties of district farmers’ markets will return for the Spring months:

  1. I’m super excited that Courthouse’s Farmers Market has gone year round, and we’ve gotten potatoes, apples, and all manner of locally produced preserved products, as well as fresh eggs, milk and buffalo.
