The Bloomingdale Farmers' Market!
coming spring 2007
We need pledges for financial donations and letters of support for a matching grant application due Nov 1st! We realize this is short notice, but any help is greatly appreciated.
The Farmers' Market will be a weekly open-air market every Sunday on R street between 1st and Florida Ave NW. The market will feature produce, meat, and dairy from local organic farmers, all of whom accept WIC and CSFP checks.

Send an email to:
And let us know if you can pledge a donation.
$5 to $500. Please send us an email and pledge anything you can.
An Example of a possible letter of support follows:
my name is______, I have lived in Bloomindale for 5 years, and I am a big supporter of Farmers' Markets. I buy organic food at Whole Foods that I must drive to since it is so far away, and I go to Farmers' Markets in other neighborhoods. In fact, i must leave my neighborhood for most of my grocer needs, organic or not.
Our neighborhood is strongly in need of a local Farmers' Market where people can spend time together, shop for healthy food, and contribute to local business...
or something to that effect....
