Greenbelt Farmer's Market (featuring Zeke's Coffee)

After many years of living in Greenbelt with few decent market options, they decided to open a Sunday farmer's market in Roosevelt Center just as soon as I move away. Although this particular market is not a destination market like Dupont, Arlington, or Eastern, it's notable for two reasons:

-Folks in central P.G. County now have another decent market (in addition to the Saturday College Park market) when they don't feel like making the schlep all the way into DC. There was a good early-season selection of asparagus, strawberries, shelling peas, spring onions, and assorted greens and root vegetables, as well as an orchard.

-Zeke's Coffee, a Baltimore roaster which seems to be popular with the Baltimore chowhounds, has a stand here. However, unlike the JFX market, they don't have a long line here.

For the record, here's a (partial) list of vendors:
-Pat Hochmuth Delmar
-Friendly Hall Farm
-Common Ground Farm
-Three Springs Fruit Farm

There were about 3 or 4 other stands, in addition to Zeke's.
