Ward 8 Farmer's Market Saturday June 4

The floodgates are open for fresh food and organic delights on Saturday at 9:00am for the grand opening of Ward 8 Farmers Market at THEARC, 1901 Mississippi Ave. SE.

For anyone using WIC or Senior vouchers or an EBT/SNAP card, we will double the value when you buy produce from our farmers. For those who need it the most, Ward 8 Farmers Market is half-price.

We also welcome the Field-to-Fork Network. This group of community gardens will sell their produce as well as specialty products such as pesto, soaps and salsa. Each item will be produced from DC soil, by the efforts of community members and volunteers. With their participation our market comes full circle. We began in 1999 after the closing of Ward 8's last Supermarket. Our market began as a self-empowerment tool. When people produce AND consume this food, we not only become healthier, we take a giant toward this self-empowerment. Please support the Field-to-Fork network by backing their kickstarter campaign

Join Ward 8 Farmers Market at THEARC!!
Saturdays 9-2
1901 Mississippi St. SE

Starting June 4, 2011
