Shoppers visiting the H Street Freshfarm Market can expect a variety of produce, meat, dairy and other products from local farmers, as well as programs such as cooking demonstrations and live music.
What produce will be available at the start of the season?
We have one farmer who says he’s going to have asparagus, which will be great. Also, there will be green garlic [baby bulbs with a milder flavor than mature ones]. We’ll have lots of those tender greens like arugula and watercress and spinach. Things really get started once strawberry season comes around. Once that starts, we can expect all the fruits we love, like apricots and plums.
The market is at 625 H St. NE and is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
