Feeling like summer has come and gone and fall quickly approaching, Farmers Markets are ready and open! Farmers Markets are a great way to not only eat fresher and healthier, but also to support local farmers! Using fresh produce from these markets is a great way to try something new! Some markets even accept WIC and/or SNAP to ensure healthy eating for all! There is no shortage of farmers markets in the DC area to visit! Here is a list of a few markets worth visiting.
· 14th & U Farmer’s Market
· Columbia Heights Community Marketplace
· Eastern Market
· Dupont Farmer’s Market
· Adams Morgan Farmer’s Market
· Capitol Harvest on the Plaza
· Chevy Chase Farmer’s Market
Most markets are open on Saturdays, some even on Sundays, so this is a nice excuse to get out of the house and do some exploring! Take the kiddos along and make eating fruits and veggies fun by having them pick some out to eat at home!
Buying fruits and vegetables that are in season is a great way to change up the monotonous dinner menu, but it is also another great way to save money. So get out there, get shopping and get healthy!
