FRESHFARM MVT Market Kicks Off in New Location

Monday May 29, 2017

Artfully dodging a few raindrops, dozens of neighborhood residents and visitors stopped by the newly expanded FRESHFARM Mount Vernon Triangle Market on May 6, enjoying new vendors, Tropical Smoothie Café samples, face painters, live music by Emma G, free lemonade from 450K Street and hot popcorn from 5th Street Ace Hardware. The Market will be open every Saturday until October 28 from 10 AM to 2 PM on Eye Street, near 5th and adjacent to Milian Park. Our organic farm producer for the last three seasons, Chicano Sol, is back with their fresh veggies, homemade canned goods and baked goods and joining them are new vendors, Pleitez Produce Farm, a family-owned, non-GMO grower; Orchard Breeze Farm with pasture-raised beef, lamb, chicken and eggs; Black Rock Orchard with fruits and berries, Panorama Bakery at Union Market with pastries and treats and Sunnyside Flowers with chemical-free, small batch single stem flowers and bouquets.

The MVT CID thanks its sponsors for the 2017 FRESHFARM market:
