Dogtoberfest, photo via Facebook / Glen's Garden MarketAn annual outdoor celebration will bring dogs, beer, German food and costumes to the Glen’s Garden Market in Dupont this weekend.

Glen’s Garden Market (2001 S St. NW) will host its third annual “Dogtoberfest” this Saturday from 3-7 p.m., according to an event listing. The event is free to attend.

Maryland brewer Flying Dog Brewery is slated to bring seasonal brews, pumpkin ales and other beers, a Glen’s employee said. The market will also serve German fare like beer soup and cabbage.

True to its name, “Dogtoberfest” will also feature a dog costume competition where pups can dress up in lederhosen and funny hats.

Republic Kolache at GlensSweet and savory Czech pastries might soon be headed to a neighborhood near you.

Last month, Glen’s Garden Market in Shaw added Republic Kolache to its vendor list, meaning patrons can pick up the Texan treats at 1924 8th St. NW each weekend.

According to Republic Kolache co-founder Chris Svetlik, Glen’s carries the company’s cream cheese and pecan and spiced apple flavors between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Kolaches will also soon be found in Union Market (1309 5th St. NE), according to Washington City Paper. Republic Kolache will sell pastries at the market between Feb. 13 and early March — and possibly even longer — the City Paper learned.

The pastries are also currently sold at American Ice Company (917 V St. NW) on Saturdays.

They’re tiny, they’re nutritious, they’re tasty, they’re microgreens.

And Maryna Higgins, the urban farmer and Dupont resident behind D.C.-based growing company Underground Greens, seeks to put more of the small salad shoots on your plate.

Higgins grows and harvests the sprouts inside a small space near Union Market, then delivers them by bike to local stores and restaurants such as Jrink, B Too, Press Juice Bar and Glen’s Garden Market.

“Most people probably see them in salads,” Higgins said. “Chefs use them as a garnish. … It’s like a new superfood.”

To grow the sprouts, Higgins spreads seeds on hemp mats placed under sunlamps. The mats are hooked up to a hydroponic watering system, which circulates fresh water to keep the plants hydrated. The sprouts mature on four-tiered shelves, and are ready for harvest after about eight to fourteen days.

The entire process, Higgins said, is designed to be as eco-friendly and energy-saving as possible.

Higgins hopes to fill her space near Union Market with trays by the end of the year. Once she fills her 900 square foot space, she said she’ll look for something a little larger. But her aim isn’t necessarily to distribute as many greens as far and wide as she can.

“When I go to Whole Foods and pick up a bunch of mint that comes from Peru, it just hurts,” Higgins said “My goal is not to expand into shipping, but [to be] local, cut down on carbon emissions and cut down on the time food travels. … being local is one of the advantages that I have.”

Still, the microgreen grower said it would be nice to expand a little.

“Microgreens is a volume business,” Higgins said. “It’s almost a catch-22. You need a bigger space for the volume, but you need a volume to invest in the bigger space.”

Higgins said she’d also like to start growing other leafy vegetables such as lettuce and herbs.

“It’s going to be hard, but I do enjoy it,” she said about the future of her company.  “It’s fun. It puts me in a lot of situations where I’m very uncomfortable. You learn a lot about this community.”

Glen's at The Shay, photo via .facebook.com/GlensGardenMarketGlen’s Garden Market has moved a step closer to opening its new location in Shaw.

The Dupont-based business has applied for a liquor license application for its forthcoming location at The Shay (1924 8th St., NW). According to the application, the new Glen’s aims to serve local beer and wine in a “communal eating space.”

Glen’s owner Danielle Vogel said at an ANC 1B meeting three weeks ago that she hopes to open the new location some time next month.

In May, Vogel told the Washington City Paper that employees at the forthcoming Glen’s would sling $4 beers and freshly prepared salads, sandwiches and entrees alongside locally sourced groceries.

“It’s going to feel more like a bodega,” Vogel told the Washington City Paper. “You’re going to be completely enrobed by the bounty of the region.”

The new Glen’s will also include a large beer garden and sidewalk cafe with seating for 51 people.

Dogtoberfest (Facebook:Glens Garden Market)

Lederhosen, dogs, German food and beer — lots and lots of beer — will abound at an annual celebration in Dupont Circle this weekend.

Glen’s Garden Market (2001 S St. NW) will host its second annual “Dogtoberfest” this Saturday from 3-7 p.m. The event was originally scheduled for last weekend, but uncertainty about the weather pushed it back.

Flying Dog Brewery is the market’s partner for the event and will bring three seasonal brews as well as collars and treats for the dogs.

The menu includes sweet and sour cabbage, cheddar bacon bratwurst and apple strudel. The market’s regular food service will also continue, but dogs are not allowed inside the store.

Patrons will use tickets to purchase food and beverages at Dogtoberfest. Tickets are sold on site and cost $2 each. Beers and food will cost two tickets, while larger plates will cost three.

“We are super excited about the weather forecast this weekend,” Glen’s Garden Market catering director Shana Muhammad said. “We’re hoping people will come by with a great attitude and ready to have fun.”

Wearing lederhosen, dirndls and other festival clothing is highly encouraged, Muhammad said. Dogs should follow the same dress code.

"Glen's"

Glen’s Garden Market to open Sunday, April 21. Click above to see pictures of the space. (Luis Gomez Photos)

From Rachel Nania. Check out her blog, Sear, Simmer & Stir. Follow Nania on Twitter @rnania, email her at rachel[AT]borderstan.com.

Glen’s Garden Market is opening this weekend, Sunday, April 21 at 20th and S Streets NW. Check out the photos of the interior of the new store.

Sunday may seem odd for an opening day, but owner Danielle Vogel planned to open the hyper-local focused specialty food store in conjunction with Earth Day.

Vogel, a self-described fourth generation grocer, decided to open her own store after several years of working on environmental policy on the Hill.  After experiencing frustration with the job — and more specifically frustration with the climate bill — Vogel decided to take the climate’s destiny in her own hands, with a store that minimizes environmentally harmful practices.

What to Expect at Glen’s

Here’s what you can expect to see/taste at Glen’s:

  • A bar/beverage area with local draft beers, bottled draft beers, a wide selection of local wines (lots of Virginia wines) and a wine dispensing machine.
  • A fully-stocked specialty meat and cheese counter. Think: spicy bison pastrami, beef pastrami and other hand-sliced local meats.
  • Locally-sourced chocolates. No need to say more.
  • Recycled interiors, such as wood that was used at a cattle fence at one of the locally-sourced farms.

The 5,000-square-foot space focuses on food and drink from the states of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, which includes DC, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New York.

Vogel, who has been working to open the space for two years says she chose the location because she feels the neighborhood will “welcome a concept like ours.”

Glen’s is opening in the former site of a Townhouse Safeway grocery store, which closed in 2010.
