It's time to get your fresh on! The Petworth Community Farmer's Market launches its 2016 season this Saturday, May 7th at 9am! You'll find the market on 9th Street & Upshur.
The Petworth Community Market will run from 9am -1pm each Saturday, May through November. They have been busy during the off-season recruiting new vendors and planning fun activities and are excited about the variety of awesome vendors, music, and activities they have to offer, both returning and new.
As they gear up for another successful year, your feedback is important to us. If you have questions or input, feel free to visit with our new market manager, Madeleine, at the red managers' tent, or stop by our Facebook or Twitter to keep in touch.
At this year's market, they are working with the Petworth Library to offer Story Time the first Saturday of every month at 10:00 am.
