Experience the farmer’s market at mosaic


Every Sunday Mosaic District hosts a Farmers Market for a company called FRESHFARM.

They have a bunch of vendors and stands that offer a variety of foods aside from fresh vegetables and fruits. They have a lot of vendors there selling ready to eat foods such as empanadas from DMV Empanadas, food from Bun’d Up, a Korean restaurant, and so much more.

They also have a bunch of stands where you can get pastries/desserts. My favorite dessert vendor was Little Austria, which offers Austrian style pastries.

My favorite place to eat at by far was DMV Empanadas. They have a variety of options such as chicken, shrimp, beef, spicy pork, cheeseburger, and cheese and bacon. My favorites were the chicken, shrimp, and cheeseburger.

They were packed with flavor and had this delicious sauce that would make your tastebuds jump. I also got a lemonade slush from Lemon Abe’s.

It’s a little stand where they sell soft frozen slush’s made with freshly squeezed lemonade. It was a  bit sour but it went perfectly with my empanadas. 

The food sold at the little restaurants are pretty affordable for the most part. They have so many places to eat at, which makes it hard to choose. The farmers market is a fun place to go to with your friends or family.

The environment is so peaceful and refreshing. I personally like being able to buy hand pick fresh fruits and veggies as well as being able to interact with friendly vendors. 

The market is almost always packed and bustling with people. This year, it is open every Sunday until Dec 29. It runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m. The market also offers more than just empanadas and lemonade.

They sell a bunch of different fruits and vegetables such as sweet onions, zucchini, corn, carrots, blackberries, peaches, and apples. They also offer jellies, jams, fresh pasta, baked goods, artisan cheese, poultry, and even eggs. The items they sell also change depending on the season because not every vegetable or fruit is being harvested all year round. Once October and November roll around they’ll be selling items such as cranberries, squash, and pumpkins.

Their arrangement of food choices and unique vendors is what really attracts customers and new people to the farmers market. Plus, Mosaic district is a very popular place to go, so people are already there on the weekends.

They come to the district and end up checking out the farmers market which adds to the popularity. It was really fascinating seeing all of the different kinds of food stands and things that they had to offer.

Overall, I would definitely recommend coming to the market and checking it out to see what they have to offer. All I know is, is that I’ll be coming back for sure.
