The market takes place from 3-7pm every Friday and is located on 9th St, NW between Georgia Ave and Upshur.

From an Email:

“As a special treat to help folks cool down, we are also welcoming the Sweetflow Mobile from 5 PM to 7 PM. The Sweetflow Mobile is an environmentally-conscious frozen yogurt truck from Sweetgreen. It is uniquely engineered to run without a generator, thus significantly reducing the amount of fuel consumed. Just like their stores, Sweetflow Mobile uses 100% compostable packaging and local/organic ingredients & toppings.”

Email continues with full list of participants and a recipe after the jump.

Try out this delicious recipe that takes advantage of the fresh corn that is starting to come to market!

Grilled Corn Mexican Style
(Mark Bittman, The Minimalist, New York Times, July 28, 2010)
Time about 20 minutes

4 ears of corn, husked
2 tablespoons mayo
1-2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Prepare a grill, with heat medium-high and rack about 4 inches from the fire. Put corn on grill and cook until kernels begin to char, about 5 minutes, then turn. Continue cooking and turning until all sides are slightly blackened.

2. Mix together mayo, lime juice, chili powder and some and pepper in small bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more lime juice or chili powder if you like. Serve corn with chili-lime mayo.”

Yield: 4 servings.”

  • Great! will definitely get some frozen yogurt this afternoon 🙂

    I think a great addition to this market would be to also have some organic produce. I think all of the vendors are now conventional. It would be great to have an option.

    I do really appreciate the conventional vendors there as well because the produce is super reasonably priced and not everyone in the neighborhood wants to pay top $ for organic.

    Also if some of the vendors have some crops that are organic or follow sustainable practices but just aren’t certified it would be great to communicate that. (Many farmers just can’t afford the expensive process to become certified). Thanks!

    • you know…you could walk…across…the street

    • I am pretty sure at least one of the vendors is organic/sustainable and it was pretty clear from their signage.

      I was out of town for a couple of weeks so maybe they no longer come to the market.

      • thanks – I’ll check this afternoon and hopefully will be happily surprised. And yes, I shop at Yes Organic Market all the time, and I can go to any of the other Farmer’s Markets in DC any time (and I do). Just given the market is new and evolving I wanted to add my $0.02 for having an organic option so those who want local and organic (as opposed to choosing between local OR organic) have that choice.

  • After work I am so going to pick up some K-Y at the new CVS, then order drunken noodles at Sala Thai, all before buying a bottle of chardonnay at Yes! and heading over to buy a pie at the farmer’s market! yayayayay Petworth!

  • In the end you probably won’t need the K-Y afterall 😮
