UDC farmers market open for the 2015 season

Have you been missing locally-grown fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and other treats? Well, the wait is over because our farmers market is open for the season! The UDC farmers market is open on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and is located at 4340 Connecticut Ave., NW, in front of the David A. Clarke School of Law.

"All of the growers are happy to be back," stated Rudy Arredondo, president of the National Latino Farmers and Ranchers Trade Association, the organization to which all of the UDC produce vendors belong. "They love the location and the market!"

In addition to seasonal fruit and vegetables, vendors offer fresh dairy, pies, flowers, potted herbs, and even freshly prepared hot meals.

The Center for Sustainable Development would like to introduce the farmers market student management team for the 2015 season: 
  • Jude Hare (pronounced Ju-day) is a UDC Architecture student interested in learning more about green initiatives, urban sustainability, and solar energy use. 
  • Maria Watkins is a rising UDC senior interested in CAUSES’ sustainability and nutrition education programs.
  • Tamara Sitta is a visiting international student from State University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. She selected UDC to continue her research and interest in sustainable/renewable energy. She will be with us until August 15. 
Stop by and say hi next Saturday!
