Sunday Farmer's Market

Hello, darlings! I see that I've gotten a flurry of new Bloglovin friends, and I am so pleased to welcome you to my little nook of the internet! :D Also, if you haven't yet entered the fabulous $100 J. Crew giftcard giveaway, go and do that before it's too late!

I have been feeling very into spring lately. In DC we tend to move from chilly winter days to overbearingly humid death-heat, er, I mean, summer, in a matter of days. Springtime tends to get skipped over all too quickly, so while it is lingering in the air, I am going to do my very best to enjoy it. 

The hubs and I had a lovely weekend last week seeing the Nats and DC United play, and for our Sunday we decided to change up our pace a little and visit a nearby farmers market. Takoma Park is technically in Maryland, but our new house is right on the DC/Maryland border, so I consider this quaint little neighborhood fair game for our adventures. 

Every Sunday, a cute farmers market sets up shop on Laurel Avenue. From what I gathered, the vendors seem to be local and offer a variety of goods, from cheeses to jams to veggies to plants to breads. What more could you want? I was definitely too distracted by a sample of delicious chipotle goat cheese to take great photos, but I promise, there are treats to be found here!

Cherry Glen cheeses-- these were awesome!

Fruit crates
Cedar sachets (I bought a lavender one!)
Fresh herbs for sale
Crêpe truck!

Overall, this was a really friendly, manageably-sized market with good variety. We stuck with the cheeses and apple cider for our first visit, but I think that next time we will stock up on more fruits and veggies. I can't wait to explore and meet more of the vendors! :D

Do you have a favorite market in your area? What's the best part? Let me know in the comments!

Laurel Avenue, Takoma Park, MD
