The fruit and labor (and vegetables) of Arcadia can now be found at The Wharf, DC's newest farmers' market, every Thursday this summer from 5-8PM. The market is located at the corner of Water and 7th Street SW, just a short walk from the SW Waterfront Metro and the Maine Avenue Fish Market.
In addition to Mo's produce from the Woodlawn farm, we've been harvesting and sourcing from Radix Farm in Upper Marlboro and two urban farms in DC, Common Good City Farm and Neighborhood Farm Initiative, all sustainable operations.
Artisan cheese and bread have made appearances at our stand, nestled between the delicious greens, beans, carrots and cabbage (expect the pepperjack and baguettes to soon be regular offerings, as well as the produce to include more summer vegetables like tomatoes and squash). We will also be welcoming berries and cherries from Kilmer's Farm and Orchards this week!
Besides being DC's only farmers' market to sell beer, The Wharf also hosts stands with prepared foods, baked goods and charcuterie. Throw in some ping pong, corn hole, lounge chairs and live jazz and you've got the perfect way to spend a Thursday evening.
