The weather is getting warmer, local ramps and asparagus have started to show up at markets (if you get there early enough to snag them), and we’ve already had a few days hot enough to make think about turning on the air conditioning. For those of us who live in the H Street neighborhood, that means it’s farmers’ market time again!
Sure, you can find farm-fresh produce all year ’round at the Dupont Circle FreshFarm Market…but if you’ve been there on a snowy January (or even March) morning you know that H Street isn’t missing much by waiting until the first weekend in May to open up. Don’t get me wrong - apples, kale and root vegetables are especially delicious when they’re local - but the ‘wow’ factor that comes from colorful fruits and vegetables just isn’t there.
