Market Roundup: July 8-15
Here is a taste of what local farmers markets have to offer this week:
SPARKLING CLEAN One of the more popular items sold at the Brunswick farmers market is Shagbark Mountain Cattle farm's herb-scented, moisturizing soaps, according to market rep Mike Ward. The soaps are made with milk from the farm's Jersey cows and come in array of scents, including lavender, cinnamon, orange wood and lemon poppy seed. Try the oatmeal work soap as well.
At the Brunswick Citizen, 101 W. Potomac St.; Fridays, 5-8 p.m.
GOT BACON? The Glover Park-Burleith farmers market will feature a chef demo with Oliver Friendly from Eat and Smile Catering, according to market manager Lauren Biel. He will be there from 10 a.m. to noon, making BLTs with his house-made bacon. While you're at the market, check out family-friendly entertainment and a free bike clinic.
Hardy Middle School parking lot, Wisconsin Avenue and 34th Street NW; Saturdays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
JUST PEACHY This season's crop of peaches, apricots and plums from the Licking Creek Bend Farm are "off-the-charts in sweetness," according to the farm's owner, Michael Tabor. Regular and white peaches cost $1.49 per pound if the total purchase is 3 pounds or more; otherwise, the fruit is $1.99 per pound. On Saturdays the farm sells at the Adams Morgan farmers market (18th Street and Columbia Road NW 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) and the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace (Civic Plaza at 14th Street and Park Road NW, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.). On Tuesday the farm sells at the Brookland farmers market (10th and Otis streets NE, 4 p.m.-7 p.m).
