Bloomingdale Farmers Market Opening Day

Remember my initial foray into the DC farmers markets last year at Bloomingdale in front of the Big Bear Cafe? Well, we're back & bigger than before. Check out that sparkling trailer! It was necessary in order to get all of the product into the city using a single vehicle since the truck is already packed four coolers high for Dupont Circle and Takoma Park with all of Keswick Creamery's delicious dairy products.
Although Bloomingdale is small compared to many other of the city's farmers markets, there is still plenty of incredibly awesome food.
Fresh asparagus & strawberries!
Real French bread.
New this year is Chef Stefano Frigerio, owner of The Copper Pot which makes phenomenal hand-crafted sauces, jams and pastas.
New this year, too, is the veggie and herb gardens in front of the Big Bear Cafe.
