Today may not seem like a good day to wander around outside, but sometimes the draw of tables full of vegetables and homemade goodies is just too much to pass up. After their winter hiatus, the Penn Quarter Farmers Market opens back up today and will be open until December 22nd. Operating from 3pm until 7pm on Thursdays, the market will be in the same location as in years past — 8th St. NW between D St. and E St.

A favorite of area chefs, the PQ Farmers Market has hosted plenty of chefs over the years, including that time Jose Andres led Anthony Bourdain around and made him eat weird raw things on No Reservations. There probably won’t be a TV crew today, but Rob Weland of Poste will be performing a cooking demonstration from 4pm-5pm for your viewing and tasting pleasure.

So head down and check out what 8th St. has to offer this year, rumor is that ramps are coming…
