H Street Main Street launches Wednesday evening Farmers Market at Starburst Plaza (15th & H/Benning/Bladensburg) tonight

H Street NE to Launch 2016 Farmers Market Today

Farmers market will offer residents after work sustainable grocery shopping from a variety of local vendors 

Washington, DC—The H Street NE Corridor’s inaugural 2016 Farmers Market will take place on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. at the Starburst Plaza Intersection. Organized by H Street Main Street, the weekly market will feature 8 to 10 local vendors offering fresh, locally grown seasonal fruits, vegetables, herbs, additional food and food-related products, artisanal pet treats, skin care products and other merchandise.

Stop by and browse the food offerings, including delectable desserts and savory, sampler-sized, portable portions from area restaurants. Beverages will also be available to sip and stroll, while shopping inside the event area.

In recent years, the rising demand for fresh and local produce and sustainable grocery practices have caused farmers markets to pop up all over the nation. Their latest evolution takes advantage of the fact that for many people, the evening hours are the best time for a shopping expedition. Nighttime farmers markets are blurring the lines between grocery shopping and entertainment—a fun night out that speaks to urban citizens of every age. And with summer temperatures soaring across the country, these markets are catching on at just the right time.

The H Street Farmers Market will take place every Wednesday from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. starting this Wednesday, July 20 through October 26 at the Starburst Plaza Intersection, where H Street NE, Bladensburg Road NE, Benning Road NE, Maryland Ave. NE and Florida Ave. NE meet (1500 block of H Street NE). 

There’s even more to look forward to this summer at the Starburst Plaza! The Farmers Market is just the first taste of all the exciting programming planned for the intersection this summer. In the coming weeks, area residents can look forward to the launch of a weekend entertainment series, night movies and new landscaping at the Starburst Plaza.
