Great Farmer's Markets and Stands

SisterT | May 2, 2002 05:46 PM

OK Chowhounders, I don't know if this truly qualifies on this board but....

I love to shop at farmer's markets and vegetable stands. Some are of course better than others, whether we're talking familiar or exotic food. I thought about joining a CSA in the area but the amount of produce you get my fiance and I would never eat fast enough (yes, I could give it to family and friends).

Please tell me your favorite places to shop in the Maryland, DC, and Northern VA area (and why would be most helpful).

I snuck away from work to checkout the one in Columbia but it was teeny tiny (3 vendors) and almost entirely flowers. Did I go on the wrong day? I've been to Larriland Farms off of Route 70 for blueberry picking and pumpkins but that's it so far. I found the street market in Takoma Park wonderous and can't wait for it to start up again.

Where do you go for great produce, fresh bread, jams and jellies, whatever?
