Local Briefing: H Street Farmers Market Returns Tomorrow & a Femme Fatale DC Pop Up

Still early for tomato season, but look for these at market soon

The FRESHFARM Market returns to its home at 13th & H Street tomorrow. They'll ring the opening bell at 9 a.m. All you favorite vendors will be back this year, and Zayt & Zaatar will join them. Zayt & Zaatar serves Mediterranean flat breads with a breakfast focus. Also keep a look out for a monthly pop up from Just Juice Smoothies and Mechelle's Baking Company.

The market will once again offer its FRESHFARM Share, a weekly subscription of local fruits and vegetables that can be picked up at the H Street NE Market. The shares are half price for anyone using SNAP/EBT.

A new pop up store is coming to the former Salvation Army space at 1371 H St. It's from Femme Fatale DC, and spots are available for local women owned businesses. The FFDC Pop-up Store Business Guide offers more details. Applications, and the initial deposit, are due April 10, so don't delay. Email[at] with questions.

 If the monthly rent is beyond your means, Femme Fatale DC notes that "businesses are welcome to propose collaborations with other local, womyn-owned businesses in their retail plot to split costs." The pop up will occupy 2,500 square feet, and a large glass window and door will replace the currently boarded up storefront.

A couple of the long time farmers were not there. Those guys were there from day one.
