Price-wise, fruit and veggies were comparable to other farmers' markets I frequent, but I did find that lettuces were 50 cents to a dollar cheaper here than other neighborhood markets.
The Marketplace has a full list of vendors on its website, but here is a rundown of my favorites:
- Dolcezza Gelato - yummy gelato and sorbet from the Georgetown and now Dupont gelato shop
- Stachowski Brand Charcuterie - delicious artisan sausages and meats
- Upper Crust Bakery - I am enjoying a scone from them right now
- Twin Post Farm, LLC - farm fresh chicken eggs, and come September, duck eggs
Can you use the CH Community Marketplace as your one weekly farmers' market visit? Perhaps. But I think my ideal Saturday morning will now be visits to both the Mt. Pleasant and Columbia Heights farmers' markets. You can get all the local fruit, veggies, cheeses, and breads you need. Plus even some gelato for dessert.
