April 6 – Our 10th Season Begins! 3210 Mount Pleasant Street, NW


Mt P Market Buskers: Fan of the hang drum? (if not here’s a preview) Come on down and relax to the hang drum tunes of Charlie Edelman.
Children’s Play Area: We love kids! Make your market trip a family affair. Shop with your young-ones and then relax and play in our kids space. We’ll bring the toys!


New this season! Spring Gap Mountain Creamery: Penny will have four sensational cheeses this week: Jersey Gold – smooth and creamy gouda, perfect for snacking or for grilled cheese sandwiches; Shenandoah Sunrise – southern French-style farmstead cheese, great for a cheese plate with bread and fresh fruit; Sophie’s Select – medium-sharp cloth-wrapped cheddar; Farmhouse Feta – aged five months for a distinct tanginess.

People’s Bao: Peter has Chinese steamed edamame buns with tender, slow roasted free range pork. And new this season – baked taro chips with edamame purée and creme brûlée made with local farms’ eggs and creme.

Pleasant Pops: Ben will be serving up four terrific flavors to kick-off the season: Cookies and Cream, Honey Lavender Cream, Strawberry Ginger Lemonade, & Cranberry Apple. *New this season, Pleasant Pops is locally sourcing their lavender from Seven Oaks Lavender Farm of Virginia.

Quaker Valley Orchards: Apples – Honeycrisp, Fuji, Stayman, and Pink Ladies. Cider, apple chips, sauce and butter. Tomato sauce, jams in blueberry, strawberry, blackberry and peach. Honey and popcorn.

Atwater’s Bread: Naturally leavened, hand shaped loaves like Peasant Wheat, Caraway Rye, Cranberry Pecan, Kalamata Olive, traditional San Francisco Sourdough, Ciabatta, Country White, Chili Cheddar, Spelt, Sunflower Flax, more. Ned Atwater does slow fermentation with carefully tended starters and wild yeast, organic stone ground flour from a family mill in North Carolina. Also yeasted breads like the slightly sweet, traditional Irish Struan bread. Great scones, muffins, cookies, brownies, granola, bagels and delicious soups to take home!

…and don’t forget to visit our other vendors on your shopping trip – Reid Orchard, Truck Patch Farms & Meat Department, and Groff’s Content Farm – for their Spring time delights!
