Good news. We are just 13 weeks away from the opening of the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace. The Saturdays-only farmers' market had a great inaugural year and is now looking for new vendors for 2011.
They are especially looking for those who sell the following: grass-fed beef, poultry and goat meat, goat cheese, milk from free-range cows, and mushrooms. Interested vendors can apply online (PDF).
Some notes for potential vendors: the market is producer-only market and offers food from within 150 miles of Washington, DC. For processed foods, 75% of ingredients must come from within this radius, and you must have a business license and use a certified kitchen in order to be eligible.
The Columbia Heights Community Marketplace will run from May 7 - December 17, 2011, and the hours are 9 am-2 pm on Saturdays.
