The popular farmers market at the corner of 14th and U streets NW will stock its carts with cherries, and several types of berries as well as pasta from local producer Cucina Al Volo this weekend from 9 a.m to 1 p.m.
Other newly added foods include apricots, red currants, spicy amatriciana sauce, fennel, and radish kimchi.
The market will also stock its normal supply of local fruits, vegetables, meat, cheese and herbs.
The market’s director, Robin Shuster, says the market will additionally sell a large number of freshly harvested whole carrots that can be used in a wide variety of dishes.
“Don’t throw away fresh carrot tops,” says Shuster. “You make pesto and other things from it.”
