We were excited when the Post announced in April that a farmers market would be coming to Cleveland Park, but upon further investigation, we learned that permit issues might complicate its opening. We’ve now confirmed, however, that a new farmers market is expected to come to the neighborhood this summer.
Market manager Gloria Garrett tells us that there’s still some details to be worked out, but it’s expected to open the first weekend in June. In addition, rather than the Macomb St. location, as previously reported by the Post, the market will now likely take place on the west side of Connecticut Ave. (A similar market, which runs along 14th and U St., is very popular.) We’re excited that the new location will be convenient for neighborhood residents and should bring more visitors to the local businesses. Garrett also manages the Sunday Palisades Farmers Market, and we’re hoping that the Cleveland Park market will feature many of the same local vendors. We will update as soon as we hear more details on vendors and the market’s schedule.
