First-Ever USDA Farmers Market at Night Tonight with Local Food Trucks, Vendors, Exhibitors from 5 to 8pm


From a press release:

“USDA Farmers Market at Night—whether you are walking to the nearby Smithsonian metro stop, running along the National Mall or pedaling home after participating in Bike to Work Day this Friday, it will be fun!

Live music from The Foolish Tooks—they toe the line between the musical genres of Irish and old time (with a dash of the strange thrown in for good measure).

Exhibitors, including Capitol Hill Bikes, Riide, City Sports DC, Rock Creek Conservancy, and the National Park Foundation, will share their knowledge and enthusiasm for exploring the trails around Washington, DC whether on foot or bike for pleasure, exercise or as a fun family activity.

The USDA Farmers Market at Night will include members of Union Kitchen, a local food business incubator, the DMV Food Truck Association, and a number of local growers, farmers and ranchers to offer market visitors cured meats, fruits and vegetables, cut flowers, cheese and dairy, and baked goods—all perfect for an evening picnic on the National Mall.
