UPDATE: We’re keeping a close watch on the latest news about the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, and doing our best to remain agile in the management of Crossroads’ programming in a rapidly changing landscape. Please be assured that we are working as always to prioritize safety at the market, the community kitchen, and all our programming spaces. Read more here.
Crossroads Farmers Market has been an essential food resource for community members since 2007. We’re planning to open as scheduled on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, and stay open for as long as possible. We are also committed to helping to keep our community safe, so if we are instructed to close by a local health authority due to concerns about public health, we will comply. If that should happen, we may not have much advance notice, but we will try to let you know as soon as possible. We will also be posting any changes to market schedules, including closures, on Facebook. If you are unsure if the market is open, we recommend you check our Facebook page.
Healthy Food For All
Crossroads Farmers Market in Takoma Park, Maryland, is a lively community gathering space for people of all backgrounds and incomes, where families, foodies, neighbors, gardeners, live-music fans, and coffee lovers meet every Wednesday afternoon to eat lunch and stock up on fresh ingredients for the week ahead. This producers-only farmers market features a range of vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, honey, coffee, flowers and plants, Central American herbs like chipilín, and tasty prepared foods, as well as food demos and tastings, kids’ activities, live music, free health screenings, and other seasonal events like our annual Halloween Spooktacular and pre-Thanksgiving Fun Before the Feast. On average, produce travels just 72 miles from area farms to our market, and our vendors collectively cultivate 622 agricultural acres of fresh food.
Crossroads Farmers Market was founded in 2007 to make fresh, healthy food more affordable and more accessible to residents of the Takoma/Langley Crossroads community. To help increase access to fresh fruits and vegetables, we gladly accept all federal nutrition benefits: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps); Women, Infants, and Children Fruit and Vegetable Checks (WIC FVC); Senior/WIC FMNP (Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks); and DC WIC. Not only was Crossroads Farmers Market the first farmers market in Maryland to accept these benefits, but also it was the first farmers market in the country to launch a “double dollar” incentive program to match them.
Through our innovative Fresh Checks program, eligible shoppers can get up to $20 in FREE fruits and vegetables every week, enabling them to stretch their buying power to bring home more fresh, healthy food while at the same time supporting local farmers and vendors. Here’s how it works: SNAP shoppers can swipe their Independence Card at our Market Information Tent’s EBT machine, and we’ll match the amount spent up to $20 every week. WIC and senior shoppers can redeem their FVC and FMNP vouchers directly with the farmers, then get a matched amount (up to $20 every week) in Fresh Checks to buy more healthy food.
Crossroads’ Multi-Farm CSA
Signups for our 2020 season are closed!
