The farmers' market last fall, courtesy of M.V. Jantzen

This always makes me sad. This weekend is the last for our farmer’s market at 14th and U: so stop by to stock up for the winter, pick up Thanksgiving day supplies, and say farewell to the vendors. The market will be back next May, but you can stop by the Dupont market in the interim, which is open all year.

As I type this from BWI (thanks for the free Internet, Google!), I wanted to let you dear readers know that I’ll be home in Massachusetts until next week (nothing like Thanksgiving in Massachusetts). I know from my sources Cork Market isn’t open yet, but dear, dear readers if it opens this week, send me an email ( or leave a comment about it. And if anything else happens in the area while I’m gone, please do tell.
