Summer officially begins on May 7 from 8 a.m. to noon with the annual switch to summer hours of the Westover Farmers Market. Now in its 11th season, this beloved neighborhood farmers market continues to grow! Thirty-six vendors are approved for this year’s market. Five new vendors have been added to the Cardinal School entrance of the market off of 18th Street N.
Westover Farmers Market has a broad variety of local seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh-cut flowers, line-caught fish, pastured meat, goat cheeses, roasted nuts, sweet and savory baked goods, fresh pasta, bacon, donuts, coffee, and market-made authentic paella. Once you’re there, grab a freshly made juice and a croissant, or a coffee and a donut, and kick back with the live music and great neighborhood vibe.
The Westover community has supported this year-round farmers market every Sunday through rain, sun and snow. The new playground at the adjacent Cardinal ElementarySchool makes it doubly attractive to bring the whole family to the market. Find our market map for viewing or download here.
