If you’re grilling out or picnicking this last weekend of summer, chances are, the farmers market at 14th and U Streets NW has just what you need for your menu. The market is open on Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm.

Weekend Finds

  • Truck Patch has barbecued ribs, chops, shoulder and sausages; Pecan Meadow has grass fed and finished beef brigade, as well as goat, duck and rabbit.
  • For fruit, expect peaches, nectarines, plums, pears, strawberries, blackberries and grapes and figs. And what’s a summer cookout without a watermelon? There are plenty of those to go around, too.
  • Whisked is ready with six-and-nine-inch pies, savory and sweet.
  • For the veggie lovers, carts are overflowing with mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes, squash, zucchini and eggplant.

And for those who need a little inspiration or entertainment, Chef Harper McClure of the Federalist will conduct a cooking demo at 11 am. The market is open on Saturday, September 1 from 9 am until 1 pm. For more information, visit the Facebook page.
