White House Farmer’s Market

October 7, 2009

Last Thursday we took a walk up the block to 810 Vermont Avenue (between H and I Streets) to visit the new farmer’s market by the White House.  We found a host of local vendors selling

Produce at the market

Produce at the market

the most tempting fresh and organic produce, local wool, flowers, gelato, baked goods (definitely try the cookies), locally made cheese, and milk. You’ll also find cooking demonstrations – in case you don’t know what to do with brussel sprouts still on the stem.

It’s a great place to put together a quick snack or a picnic for a walk over to Lafayette Park by the White House.

You might notice a lot of photographers at the market as well. Mrs. Obama has been spotted at the market. (Unfortunately during our visit, she was traveling.)

Right now, the White House Farmer’s Market is scheduled to run every Thursday afternoon from 3 – 7 p.m. through the end of October. Stay tuned – we’ll let you know if they extend it or renew it in the spring.
