Opening Dates for D.C.’s Farmers’ Markets

photoD.C.'s farmers' markets are back for the season, which means you can now get two bunches of ramps for $10! The Foggy Bottom and Penn Quarter FRESHFARM markets opened last week, and the market by the White House debuted today with plenty of prepared foods, including pizza from The Red Zebra, sandwiches from Three Little Pigs, and vegetarian tacos from Chaia. Also worth checking out is a new operation called Pinch (see pics bel0w), which serves handmade Chinese dumplings with fillings like lamb and carrot or eggplant and cilantro (six for $8.50).
