Market Info

The Takoma Park Farmers Market is the Washington area’s first Sunday market and an early pioneer in the producers-only movement. We are located on Laurel Avenue in the quaint, historic shopping district in Takoma Park.  There are 25 vendors that offer a wide variety of fresh bread and baked goods, artisan cheeses, pasture raised meats, charcuterie, mushrooms, fruit, vegetables, prepared foods, wine and more.

The market has been operating since 1983.   Learn more about our history here.

Fresh, Local Food

It is our mission to offer only fresh, local food at the market. Products sold at the market must be produced within a 125-mile radius of Takoma Park. An astonishing array of fruits, vegetables and other agricultural products comes from our regional foodshed, but some things just can’t be grown here. You won’t find bananas at the Takoma Park Farmers Market. Only food and agricultural products will be sold at the market.


Customers often ask if everything sold at the market is organic. The answer is no. Some farmers have been certified as organic, others follow an organic regimen but have not sought certification, and others use an integration of organic or non-organic methods.
