“Farmers Markets and Composting?”

Photo by PoPville flickr user Eric P.

“Dear PoPville,

In light of all the closings in DC, I haven’t been able to find much out about DC farmers markets, and especially the compost drop-off sites run by the DC government. I understand packed farmers markets aren’t the best idea during this time, but I hope the compost sites wouldn’t have to close too. Does anyone know the status of these services?”

From Freshfarm: “FRESHFARM is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak as it continues to develop. At this time, markets will remain open in accordance with their usual schedule. However, we urge you to stay home if you are sick. If you attend the market, please prioritize essential food purchasing and do not use the market as a place for social gathering for the time being.”
