Farmers Markets to Enjoy This Fall

October 19, 2016

There are a lot of perks associated with living in ROSS’ apartments near college campuses; but one of the best is our communities’ amazing locations, offering residents the luxuries of close proximity to campus, easy access to public transportation and best of all, the joys of living in the DC metro area.

What better joy is there than waking up on a crisp fall morning and heading to the nearby farmers market to grab fresh produce and artisanal products sold by local merchants.

Below are a few (of the many) farmers markets that the residents of ROSS’ college apartments can enjoy this fall!

Eastern Market

This long-standing market has served as a community hub for over 136 years, providing the area with a source of local farm-fresh produce and handmade arts and crafts. Plus, the market is open until 6 p.m. on Saturday, allowing for prolonged, lazy-Saturday sleep-ins.

Dupont Circle FRESHFARM Market

Located just a few blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro stop, this one-stop-shop is providing the district with upwards of 50 vendors offering a variety of products, from certified organic produce to locally roasted coffee and district-made spirits and beers.

Alexandria Farmers Markets

If you don’t feel like crossing the Potomac, there are four local markets that serve the Alexandria community.

Downtown College Park Farmers Market

Offering both locally sourced produce and family-friendly events, this market is providing the College Park area with the perfect Sunday destination.

Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market

Mt. Pleasant Farmers’ Market capitalizes on providing the community access to “foods produced with organic, biodynamic, and other ecological methods”, adding a sustainable grocery shopping destination to our locations page!

This weekend, explore one of the many markets providing communities with artisanal, fresh, locally sourced products.
