We’d like to thank Penn, Westmoreland, Valle, and Homestead Farms for their generous contributions to the chef demo.
We have several new vendors at the Market. One of them is the Vegetable Garden, a restaurant on Georgia Avenue (at the Leisure World Plaza). Their vegetarian cuisine proved very popular - an interesting contrast to Dangerously Delicious Pies and Fat Freddy’s Pizza!

This Sunday, we’ll have another restaurant chef for the demo - Ethan McKee, Executive Chef at Urbana Restaurant near Dupont Circle. Also, Steven Howard Confections will return with their terrific chocolates, and Blue Ridge Dairy will have their fresh cheese - now I don’t have to go to Silver Spring for their ricotta! Hurrah!
