We want to build this market with you!

The Uptown Farmers Market has been operating 4 years in the 16th street heights/Brightwood Park neighborhood. Washington, DC. This market serves a diverse shopper base consisting of young families, young professionals, and older residents, boasting robust cash sales as well as active food access programs. This is one of the few farmers market operating in Ward 4 in Washington, DC.

The newly branded market will start its operation on Saturday, April 20th, and run through November 23, 2019.

The market strives to:

  • Support local farmers and businesses by giving them an available outlet to sell directly to the consumer;
  • Enrich the community by making farm fresh in‐season produce available to customers;
  • Provide affordable healthy food options to all families;
  • Inform customers about healthy and sustainable food choices;
  • Give customers access to locally produced baked goods and food products, and locally handcrafted items;
  • Promote a community gathering spot that creates a festive atmosphere and a community destination.

The market costs over $35,000 annually to run and we rely especially on generous sponsorships to implement our marketing, operations, site development, education and community relations programs to achieve our mission’s goals.

Becoming a Friend of the Market will not only help connect with residents who share your commitment to supporting local businesses, but it will also support regional agriculture, local small business and the overall health of D.C. residents. You will also ensure that we keep this weekly source of fresh, healthy food thriving in our neighborhood.

Friends of the Market receive a market t-shirt, a Community Foodworks tote bag, and exclusive monthly promotions and discounts.
