Markets & Stores

Any recent happy farmers market visits?

Early on, I went to the Dupont FM when the the VA markets were closed. Now VA markets are "open" but you need to preorder your items. For me, that is no fun. Half of the pleasure of cooking for me is getting the ingredients, which I guess is why I've never been an online food shopper. I love prowling the market looking for the freshest eggplant, the most interesting peppers, whatever. One of my regular FMs, Mt. Vernon/Sherwood Hall, opens today but from what I can tell from the horrible website same situation wrt order in advance from a specific vendor, then line up in the parking lot to pick up your packaged items. Ugh, no thank you. I'd rather sulk at home.

So, any of you having great FM experiences anywhere in the DMV during the pandemic? Do tell.
