A new farmers market from Community Foodworks will open at Old City Farm and Guild (925 Rhode Island Ave. NW) Sunday, according to Old City owner Frank Asher.

The market will carry produce from Three Springs Fruit Farm and Pleitez Produce alongside coffee from Qualia Coffee, baked goods from Bonaparte Bread, meat from Liberty Delight Farm and products from other vendors Sundays between 10 a.m and 2 p.m.

“I personally have always wanted to get a farmers market going in Shaw,” Asher said. The new market is Old City Farm and Guild’s first large-scale farmers market, he added.

“This is in line with our mission as a small business as well,” Asher said. “We are thrilled about it and hope to see people taking advantage of it.”

Community Foodworks also operates farmers markets in Columbia Heights, Brookland, Glover Park, Northeast D.C., and in Arlington, Va.
