Market-Fresh Food in Chevy Chase

market2 (Copy)Late summer is one of the best times of year to buy locally produced foods in Chevy Chase. One of the most popular of the farmers’ markets is held on Saturday mornings at Lafayette School on Broad Branch Road, NW, in Chevy Chase, D.C.

The main attraction at the Lafayette market is doubtless the fresh produce provided by a number of area farmers. In the picture above, Brett Grohsgal of Even’ Star Organic Farm in Lexington Park, MD offers fresh tomatoes and melons to a customer. In addition to selling at the market, Even’ Star offers a subscription produce service to Chevy Chase residents.

Ready-to-eat food also attracts customers to the market. That’s the space of Les Caprices de Joelle below. Les Caprices offers both Belgian waffles and paella made in its kitchen in Jessup, MD by chef Joelle Coats.
