Located on the sidewalk along Crystal Drive between 18th and 20th Streets, Crystal Farms takes place every Tuesday from 3 PM to 7 PM from May 18th through October 26th, 2010.
This year's market will be ran by FRESHFARM Markets, which currently operates the top farmers' markets in the region.
The farmers’ market enables area employees and residents to purchase locally produced fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, specialty foods, and artisan goods. Bringing local farmers and consumers together, Crystal Farms helps ensure the employment of sustainable growing practices and reduces fossil fuel consumption by offering locally grown goods that have a much shorter travel distance.
To celebrate the start of the farmers' market season, the Crystal City BID is giving away banner bags to those who spend at least $10 at the market (limit one bag per person per vendor; while supplies last).
