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 the first farmers market in Maryland to accept federal nutrition benefits like SNAP and WIC and the first in the country to launch a “double dollar” incentive program to match the value of these benefits spent at the market. Eligible shoppers can stretch their buying power to bring home more fresh fruits and vegetables and at the same time support local farmers and vendors.

Crossroads’ Multi-Farm CSA

Members of our Multi-Farm CSA not only receive delicious, locally grown fruits and vegetables from Crossroads Farmers Market vendors all through summer and fall, but also they become an essential part of our nonprofit’s work to build a healthier, more inclusive food system in Maryland’s Takoma/Langley Crossroads. Installment plans and SNAP accepted! Membership is now closed for the 2018 season, but if you join our email list below, you’ll be among the first to find out about it next year. Questions? Check out our CSA FAQ, or contact CSA Coordinator Liz Whitehurst at lwhitehurst@crossroadscommunityfoodnetwork.org.

 

Apply to be Market Vendor or Sponsor

Crossroads Farmers Market invites regional farms and food businesses to apply for the 2019 season. Feel free to share the application with other potential vendors, especially if they offer seafood, bread, honey, dairy, or flowers/plants/plant starters, as we are looking to add those items this season. For more information, please contact Morgan at mwiggan@crossroadscommunityfoodnetwork.org.

Sponsoring Crossroads Farmers Market is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to our community, and one of the best values around for promoting your business or organization. Last year the market saw more than 1,000 visitors each week, and market shoppers spent more than $16,000 at nearby stores. For a tiny fraction of that amount, you can increase the visibility of your business or organization to our many cash and credit shoppers. There is a range of support opportunities, and we are also able to customize your package to fit your desired support level best. For more information, contact us at info@crossroadscommunityfoodnetwork.org.
