Fresh Farm Market at Dupont Circle

Fresh Farm Market at Dupont Circle

By Jo Cooper

As a special treat for Mother’s Day, my husband took me to the farm market at Dupont Circle.  One of 8 area markets run by the marvelous Fresh Farm Markets folks (and if you want to know how to do it, ask them), this market is comprised of many vendors, selling veggies, flowers, flats for your garden, a myriad of mushrooms, cheeses and free-range eggs, wool and yarns from a local sheep farm… everything colorful, local and fresh.  The morning was oooooh, chilly for spring, but with enough sun and people to make it festive.

We filled our basket with irresistible greens– collards, lettuce, chard– ramps, which I’ve never tried (always good to experiment), and parsnips which are my favorite root vegetable.  Besides beets.  And celeriac.  Oh, and carrots…

Many happy returns of the day to my fellow moms! And cheers to you who are feeding your kids vibrant, healthy foods, and getting them in the kitchen with you to wash and chop.  We’re doing our part to make a healthier, happier world.
