RFK Farmers Market – Photo Essay
by Larry Janezich
The RFK Farmers Market opened some 30 years ago under the Mayoral tenure of Marion Barry. It offers basic produce at cheap prices – plus a few specialty items hard to find elsewhere. The market is in RFK Parking Lot No.6, open from 7 AM to 4 PM, Thursdays and Saturdays, year-round (unless there is a game at RFK). Below are photos of some of offerings. The spring onions and strawberries are done, but the local greens and squash are being picked, and next Saturday marks the beginning of the tomato harvest.
