You might not expect to find fresh fruits and vegetables in the heart of a bustling metropolis, but that's exactly what awaits at Freshfarm DuPont Circle Market. In fact, Washingtonian magazine praises the market, saying it helped teach Washingtonians to love their fruits and vegetables. The Financial Times of London and The Wall Street Journal agree with the accolades, crowning the market in your 'hood as one of the best in the nation.
The market is open year-round in Dupont Circle, but it attracts the largest number of vendors in the warm summer months. That's because most of the farms are overflowing with seasonal produce around this time, like Anchor Nursery's fields, which grow vegetables and fruits.

Meanwhile, Breezy Meadow Farms offers poultry, water buffalo meat, rabbit, and chicken stock; Clear Spring Creamery has milk and cheese to sell; and Talking Breads promises fresh loaves of bread and other baked goods.
