As always, it’s open rain or shine! The latest weather for tomorrow is: early rain giving way to a cloudy day rising to 75 degrees by 1 PM.
NEW this week: We love to support neighborhood organizations. We offer fruit or vegetables for one time events, gift certificates for silent auctions or raffles. We also consider other ideas you might have to support the neighborhood. Please contact Jim Coleman @ freshvistamarkets.
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 @ freshvistamarkets.
We are still looking for musicians to play acoustically for tips at the market. If you’ve always wanted to try it, this may be your golden opportunity.
Produce Plus, DC’s fresh veggies incentive program, is finished for this season at the market. We have a limited amount of checks for the Fruit & Vegetable Prescription program, which runs until November of this year. Ask your local health clinic about the program.
