Not that you need another reason to celebrate the weekend but check out the events below and snag local fruits, veggies and goodies from our friendly vendors.

Community Canopy
At this weeks PCM Community Canopy, Red Wiggler will have kid’s healthy eating and nutrition activities! Red Wiggler Community Farm is a non-profit organic vegetable farm in Germantown, MD providing food, education and employment for adults with developmental disabilities and youth.

Plant a Seed
To kick off our season PCM invites you to join us in a seed planting activity! Stop on by the market tent to make a paper pot and plant a seed to bring back to your own garden.

Story time
Every Saturday at 9:30am! Stories will be chosen based on PCM’s monthly education theme – May is all about gardening. See you Saturday!”

    Dear Petworth Market –
    Why no information on your vendors, only information on the non-food stuff? This does not give me a reason to come to you rather than making my usual trip to Columbia Heights.

  • YES! Must have Kuhn’s, Whisked, and #1 sons! FINALLY

  • Can’t wait for the Petworth market. That said, last year my favorite vendor was gone – the friendliest guy with the biggest produce stand and far and away the cheapest prices. Young-ish Hispanic guy, had his younger siblings with him a lot, always threw in plenty of extra stuff for free (when you were buying a ton of other stuff, at least).

    The lineup was less than stellar with him gone. The Kuhn’s stand was good for fruit but doesn’t have much in the way of veggies. The other stands seemed to be hipster urban gardeners selling $9 bunches of kale. I didn’t care as much because I did a CSA, but that was too stressful and I’ll be relying more on the market this year.

    Also, can we get a bread stand that has something other than sweet bread? What I wouldn’t give to have Lyon or St Michelle there..

    • Was that Gonzales Produce? I forget. Anyway, I’d recommend Le Caprise for bread just up from the market. Or Panorama down at the 14th & U farm market.
