2019 Farmers Market

UDC Farmers Market

The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability, and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is pleased to announce the start of its 2019 farmers market season.

The Van Ness Farmers Market is managed by CAUSES’ Center for Sustainable Development and Resilience, in collaboration with Van Ness Main Street, and the National Latino Farmers & Ranchers Trade Association. The market offers fresh produce from area vendors, including local farmers, bakers, and artisans.

Planned events for this season include live music, cooking demonstrations, and information about food safety. UDC’s nutrition educators and chefs also will frequent the market, to offer nutrition information, cooking tips, and other information to the public.

“We are privileged to serve residents of the District by offering unique opportunities for community enhancement. Our farmers markets are a critical component of this endeavor,” said Dr. Dwane Jones, Director of the Center for Sustainable Development and Resilience.
