Menu for Saturday, August 27 @ 14th & Kennedy FM from 9 to 1PM

We’re located @ 5501 Colorado Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

Here’s our menu in one easy link!

As always, it’s open rain or shine! The latest weather for tomorrow is: mostly sunny rising to 88 degrees by 1 PM, with no rain in sight.

NEW this week: We have made some minor formatting changes to the menu. Please let us know what you think about them.

Produce Plus, DC’s fresh veggies incentive program, is back this week at the market. We have checks for 50 customers only, sorry. We also have a limited amount of checks for the Fruit & Vegetable Prescription program. So far, it looks like the program will be ending early on September 4 due to the high customer redemption rate.

We are on the hunt for new hot food vendors now. If you know of a vendor who would be adaptable to the market’s needs and experienced on morning oriented outdoor events to be our anchor hot food vendor, we would love to talk with you about this, contact Jim Coleman @ 2026818799 or freshvistamarkets.

We are featuring the unique sounds of Montgomery Fox as our entertainer for this week.
