Market SW and the Community Farmer’s Market return to the Lot at 4th and M Streets SW on May 12 and 13, respectively.
Market SW is the District’s only bimonthly night market and runs from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. each second and fourth Friday through October 27. The evening market features art, live music, food, and a beer garden. Market SW is moving into its third year and continues to attract families, young professionals, and community members from the DC Metropolitan area.
The Dreaming Out Loud Community Farmer’s Market features produce by local growers and meat and eggs sourced in a sustainable way. During the Farmer’s Market there’s live music, performances, and activities for children. The farmer’s market runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“We are excited about this market season,” said Mike Berman, Market SW manager. “With all of the development going on in Southwest DC we think we’re going to attract visitors who want to see what this part of the city is all about.”
Both markets attract hundreds of shoppers every year and this year is expected to more than prior years. The markets take place at the Lot at 4th and M Streets SW across the street from Waterfront Metro Station, which is on the green line. Parking is nearby and plentiful.
The farmer’s market is produced by Dreaming Out Loud in partnership with Diverse Markets Management and supported by the Southwest BID and Waterfront Station.
