Georgetown's Rose Park Society
With the help of Friends of Rose Park and the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation, farmers began offering their locally grown produce (as well as organic meats, pastries, and fresh flowers) on the driveway between the tennis and basketball courts. Soon the market grew, and has been occupying the grassy edges along the baseball field for the past three years.
It must be Wednesday afternoon. Where else can you hear the sounds of tennis balls, kids laughing (the playground is behind the basketball court), and dogs barking (thanks to Midland Farms and their doggy treats) while cyclists and runners pass by neighbors of all ages exchanging news of the day while they decide on dinner.
Stop to smell the flowers, and meet your neighbors at Rose Park Farmer's Market every Wednesday afternoon 3:00 pm- 7:00 pm from mid-April through the last Wednesday in October.
With the help of a few more market manager (and marketing) volunteers, Leslie and co-manager Mary Carroll Platt would love to expand. If you want to help, please contact Leslie Wheelock at firstname.lastname@example.org
