Open Sundays, year-round from 10am-2pm on Laurel Avenue
Join us every Sunday on Laurel Avenue in the lovely historic business district of Takoma Park. You’ll find the freshest local, seasonal produce, breads, pasture raised meats, artisan cheese, eggs, baked goods and more from farms located within 125 miles of Takoma Park, MD. Each week, the market is a lively meeting place for residents and visitors. Street performers often set up along the sidewalks and non-profits share info at the Community Corner creating an enjoyable backdrop to market activities.
Thanks to the record 57 pie bakers who participated in the 2016 Takoma Park Farmers Market Pie Contest! And thanks to all those who came out to eat the delicious creations! We raised $956 for the market SNAP Match Fund.
