One of the sure signs that spring is here: the farmers markets are starting to open back up. The ability to walk to these markets is a huge asset for anyone who values easy access to locally sourced food. Thankfully they're all over the city. While Eastern Market is probably the most well-known spot, there's a high concentration of markets on the Green Line with ones at Columbia Heights, Mt. Pleasant, Petworth and U Street. We've mapped out the area's farmers markets for those among us that weigh proximity to these spaces when choosing a new neighborhood.
