Farmers market closes for the season

After a successful six month season, the UDC farmers market has closed for the year.

"This has been one of the best farmers market seasons to date, thanks in part to student market managers, Maria Watkins and Jude Hare," said Dr. Dwane Jones, director, Center for Sustainable Development. "I would also like to thank Rudy Arredondo and the National Latino Farmers and Ranchers Association for their continued partnership and the David A. Clarke School of Law."

The Center for Sustainable has been working on an economic analysis and would appreciate your feedback. Please take a few minute to take their survey. 

Providing great closure to the season was the recent mention of the UDC farmers market by Chef Dalliah of neighborhood bakery Bread Furst in Washington's Surprise Attraction: Urban Farmers' Markets 

"On Saturdays from May until the end of November, Mr. Dalliah heads to the nearby farmers market at the University of the District of Columbia for produce to turn into dishes such as pickled carrots and onions, grilled cauliflower with tahini and caramelized onions, and kohlrabi slaw with beets."

Thanks, Bread Furst! And now, here is a pictorial look back at the season:

Maria and Jude!
