To Market, to Market: Kosher in Bethesda, more for Ward 8

* Starting Sunday, kosher grass-fed beef, lamb and pastured poultry from KOL Foods will be available at Bethesda Central Farm Market. Looks like this is a first for Washington area farmers markets. KOL contracts through 10 or so farms and their products are not industrially processed. The business was featured recently on NPR Marketplace.

* The Ward 8 Farmers Market Cooperative returns Saturday, June 5, and this year it runs two days a week, in two locations: the parking lot of the old Congress Heights School, 500 Alabama Ave. SE, (9 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and in the parking lot of United Medical Center, 1310 Southern Ave. SE, beginning June 8 (3 to 7 p.m.). Among the vendor/producers: 99.6 Acres and a Mule from St. Mary's County; Terrapin Station Herb Farm of York, Pa.; and Bree's Plants, grown in Ward 8.
