Glover Park Farmers' Market 2010 Season Opening 5/8/10

The Glover Park Farmers' Market, which was hailed last summer as a valuable addition to the neighborhood, is soon starting its second season on Saturday, May 8th 2010. It will run every Saturday from 9:00-1:00, rain or shine, through October 30th.

The location is the Hardy Middle School parking lot (where the Georgetown Flea Market is held) across from the Social Safeway at Wisconsin and 34th Streets.

Info from those managing the market: "The Glover Park-Burleith Farmers’ Market is a producer-only market, featuring local fruit, vegetables, meat, cheese, bread, eggs, plants, cut flowers, handmade soap, pasta, gelato and more. Live bluegrass music, local fruit, vegetables, meat, cheese, cut flowers, gelato, plants, bread and more. Dogs are welcome. WIC coupons accepted."

Kudos to Lauren Biel and the others who have worked tirelessly and selflessly to make this market a success, hopefully year after year.
