While the Liberty Market has been a tease the nearby Walker Jones Community Farm is stepping to fill the produce void this summer. Earlier this week the Walker Jones Farm launched an initiative to serve produce to the community in two ways: a Work Exchange and a Farm Stand that will operate three days a week.
The Walker Jones Farm is located at New Jersey Ave and K Street NW. The farm is growing a huge variety of vegetables and fruits including tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, swiss chard, turnips, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, watermelon, canteloupe, green beans, lima beans, pole beans, lettuces, carrots, beets, basil and other herbs, zinnias and sunflowers.
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1pm-6pm and Sundays from12-4pm the farm is open to the public for community volunteer days. Anyone is welcome to lend a hand with various farm tasks and in exchange, you will be given a selection of the day’s produce. Bring your own bag!
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4pm-6pm and Sundays from 2pm-4pm our farm stand will be open, beginning July 3rd. We will be selling freshly harvested produce and cut flowers at extremely low prices. All profits support the school farm.
