  1. From soil farmers to taco makers, our vibrant farmers markets support over 140 local farmers and small food producers, generating over $10 million in gross sales to fuel the mid-Atlantic foodshed.
  2. In today’s fast-paced and sometimes disconnected world, our markets are modern day town squares: community spaces that bring together people of all ages and economic backgrounds. City dwellers meet farmers, neighbors become friends, and sometimes people even find love. (Have a love story? Tell us about it.)
  3. We make it possible for you to shake the hand that feeds you!  Everything sold at our markets is grown or made by the people selling it. Have a question? Ask a farmer!
  4. We are delicious! From Brussels sprouts to burrata to donut peaches, the farmers and producers at our markets are a driving force in making the DMV one of the most exciting food scenes in our region.
  5. We're here for you! Unlike other area farmers markets that shut down for the winter, we’re open year round. Our farmers, producers, and market staff brave the brutal winter weather to bring you the freshest food the region has to offer.
  6. In addition to providing economic opportunities for farmers and food producers, we help them expand their business with scholarships to attend professional trainings and assistance accessing zero-interest loans for infrastructure enhancements.
  7. We are growing the next generation of food advocates with our FoodPrints project, working with 3,000 DC Public School students to teach them how to grow, harvest, and cook (and enjoy) such nutritious foods as kale!
  8. Are you mystified by kale and too old to enroll in FoodPrints? Through Chef at Market we host over 160 market demos a year, inviting chefs, nutritionists, and food educators to show you how to prepare simple meals with food you can get at the market.
  9. We believe that good food is for everyone! Matching Dollars lowers economic barriers to shopping at farmers markets by matching what customers using federal nutritional benefits spend.
  10. We fight food waste and hunger with our Gleaning project, connecting farmers with local emergency food organizations to collect tens of thousands of pounds of unsold market foods a year.
  11. Our markets are inclusive spaces for people and for produce, even the weird stuff that gets rejected from supermarkets for being the wrong size and shape. Case in the point: the above pictured daikon radish. 
  12. We aren’t shy, especially when asking our community for help! We love nourishing our food future, but can’t do it without your support. Please contribute to our work with a donation.

You get your fruits and veggies, your eggs and meat, your coffee and even your booze at the farmers market. So why not get your holiday gifts there too? Local gifts made by small farmers and producers are unique and personal and will benefit more than just the recipient. When you do your holiday shopping at farmers markets, your spending helps us grow a more sustainable mid-Atlantic foodshed. Here’s a gift guide broken down by personality type, which you can customize to suit your budget. If you still can’t decide, you can always purchase gift tokens online! The FRESHFARM Penn Quarter and H Street NE markets will be open through mid-December, while the Silver Spring and Dupont Circle markets are open year-round.

For the Self-Care Aficionado
Have a friend or family member who loves to self-pamper? We promise that they will adore small-batch handmade soaps, lotions, lip balms, and bath balls made with nourishing beeswax, goat milk, and sheep milk. Pick from Amalthea Ridge (H Street NE), Banner Bee Company (Silver Spring plus popping up at Dupont Circle 12/11 and 12/18), Belle's Acres (Silver Spring), and Shepherds Manor Creamery (Dupont Circle and Penn Quarter).

A pint of cream from Clear Spring Creamery (Dupont Circle and Silver Spring) and a pound of coffee from Zeke’s Coffee (Dupont Circle, H Street NE, and Penn Quarter) will round things out perfectly.

The Harvest Feast

10/07/2016

 
Picture
By Mike Koch, Executive Director 

One of the oldest human traditions, the harvest feast signals the end of the summer growing season and the coming of winter. It is a tradition represented in nearly every world religion and many secular ones, including our own American Thanksgiving. At their core, these traditions share two common themes: balance and the harmony of the seasons and our planet’s solar and lunar cycles, and agriculture. Harvest feasts around the world celebrate the bounty of the soil, the harvesting of the crops, and their storing and preserving in anticipation of winter. It was historically, and remains, a time for celebration and a giving of thanks for the abundance of nature and for the talents and labors of those who work with nature to farm and grow the food we need to survive.
 
The FRESHFARM Feast, taking place on Tuesday, October 18, is Washington’s original farm-to-table gala. This year’s Feast marks the fifteenth harvest season since supporters first came together around tables in the autumn of 2002 at Chef Cesare Lanfranconi’s Restaurant Tosca. Since then, FRESHFARM’s Feast has annually celebrated our region’s agricultural bounty while raising a substantial portion of the funding needed to realize our mission. 
 
This year’s Feast is a special one. It will certainly be an unforgettable meal prepared by amazingly talented chefs; but more importantly, it puts the farmer and food producer in the spotlight. Our farmers and food producers are the headliners on each sumptuous course, paired with their chef allies--chefs with whom they have forged sourcing relationships that every day fight to keep the farmer at the center of our plates and our tables. And while not purely vegetarian, meat has been moved from the center of the plate. We celebrate the incredible vegetable bounty of the Mid-Atlantic foodshed and remind each of us of the importance of making mindful protein choices.
 
FRESHFARM’s work seeks to assist farmers and food producers succeed and grow. It seeks to educate this generation and the next about the importance of farming and making mindful, seasonal food choices. It seeks to break down the barriers that our neighbors face in accessing locally grown, healthy foods for their families.  It seeks to nourish our food future.

Come Feast with us! 

 
 
It's National Farmers Market Week! From August 7 to 13, markets across the country will be participating in the Department of Agriculture-sponsored celebration of healthy communities, bountiful produce, and the amazing farmers who grow our food. There are lots of ways to celebrate your love of farmers markets; here are just a few:

1. Participate in the Farmers Market Coalition's Instagram contest
Get creative by posting photos to Instagram incorporating the Farmers Market Coalition's “I Heart Farmers Markets” temporary tattoos. Here's what to do: 
  • Grab your tattoo from the info tent at a FRESHFARM market. Take a photo of yourself, a farmer, shopper, puppy, baby, tomato – anyone or anything! – wearing a tattoo. 
  • Post the photo to Instagram with the hashtag #LoveMyMarketFun prizes (and bragging rights) will be awarded by FMC to both the market AND photographer of the winning photos. 
  • Tag @FRESHFARMMarkets and use the hashtag #Road2FarmAid to be entered to win two tickets to the Farm Aid Concert at Jiffy Lube Live on September 17, plus an awesome swag bag from Farm Aid!
  • The deadline to submit is August 31.

 2. Visit a new market
FRESHFARM operates nine markets and farmstands in DC, three in Maryland, and two in Virginia. We hope you have a regular market that you frequent, but visiting a new market is a great way to meet new farmers and see a new neighborhood!

 3. Buy a ticket to the FRESHFARM Feast
Our annual gala will take place on Tuesday, October 18 at Dock 5 at Union Market. The event includes a line-up of the area's top chefs and a dreamy auction of once-in-a-lifetime experiences and trips. We hope you'll join us! Buy tickets here.

 4. Shop - rain or shine
Even if you buy most of your groceries at the supermarket and can only buy a couple of items at the farmers market, small shifts in spending can make a huge impact for our farmers. Markets are an essential economic outlet for farmers, who rely on their customers to come out even on the rainy days!

5. Donate to our Matching Dollars fundraiser
The Matching Dollars program matches what shoppers spend with their federal nutrition benefits, up to $10. This summer, we're holding a fundraiser to keep the program thriving. From now until Labor Day, if you donate at least $20 to Matching Dollars, you will be entered into a drawing to win a ticket to the FRESHFARM Feast on October 18. Thanks to you, we've already raised $942 in two weeks! Donate here.
 
 
TemRa, a community builder with the People’s Health Initiative in DC and a FRESHFARM shopper, understands the importance of fresh food. He knows the impact that it has on his health and overall well-being, and he knows how delicious fresh, local food tastes.
 
But he also knows the impact that high-quality food from the farmers market can have on his wallet. “The vegetables and fruits at market look so good, but it’s expensive,” he says. And it’s a real challenge to decide whether his dollars will go towards healthy market produce, or whether he will spend them on “transit, housing, city living—it all costs so much.” TemRa, and so many others in our community, face this tough decision every day. That’s why he so values FRESHFARM’s Matching Dollars program, which matches what shoppers spend with their federal nutrition benefits, up to $10. Matching Dollars helps TemRa stretch his shopping dollars, making the prices “more comparable to supermarket rates—and the quality is so much better!”
 
His colleague, known as Ms. Lioness, agrees. The first time she had a fresh tomato from the farmers market, she said it brought back a flood of memories: “It tasted like the tomatoes from my grandma’s garden, and much better than anything I’ve ever had from Harris Teeter!” She wants everyone to know what it was like “when food tasted like food,” which is why she’s working to increase access for all at the farmers market. “I have children. When I found out about Matching Dollars, it helped me feed fruits and vegetables to two more people in my household,” Ms. Lioness explains. The program has had a real, tangible impact on her family’s diet and has increased the amount and diversity of healthy foods she can purchase.
 
TemRa and Ms. Lioness are both very conscious of the impact the Matching Dollars program can have for farmers as well. They know that market prices reflect the effort farmers put into raising their crops and the wages they are paying their employees, and that most small farmers cannot compete with large, national distributors. They view the Matching Dollars program as essential in getting more money in the pockets of local farmers, while also increasing the number of shoppers that have access to market. “So many farmers themselves are struggling to make a decent living,” Ms. Lioness says. “We need these farmers,” TemRa adds, “and we need to bridge the gap between low-income shoppers and farmers. This is about more than just food. I know that spending money with them is an investment in my health.”
 
Indeed, the Matching Dollars program, at its heart, is about leveling the playing field so that all members of our community can have access to the fabulous produce that our local farmers bring to market every week. But we need your support to keep the program thriving. From now until Labor Day, if you donate at least $20 to Matching Dollars, you will be entered into a drawing to win a ticket to the FRESHFARM Feast on October 18. And you’ll know that you are helping shoppers like TemRa and Ms. Lioness buy more of the fruits and vegetables that we all deserve to enjoy.

Thanks to you, we've already raised $500 in the first week of our fundraiser!
