From a press release:

“sweetgreen, the much-loved, organic, farm-to-table salad shops founded in Washington, D.C., opens in Silver Spring, M.D. today – exactly six years since sweetgreen opened its first store in Georgetown. The Silver Spring store is located in the heart of downtown at 8517 Georgia Avenue, next to the Discovery Communications headquarters and Silver Spring Farmers Market. Silver Spring residents now have access to sweetgreen’s healthy and delicious salads, grain bowls, seasonal soup and frozen yogurt, which have garnered a cult-following in the D.C. area.

In celebration of opening day, sweetgreen is inviting guests to “Pay What You Want” until 4pm, with all proceeds benefiting FRESHFARM Markets. The organization’s mission is to educate the public about food and environmental issues and to provide vital economic opportunities for local farmers through farmers markets and other programs in the Chesapeake Bay region.”
