A new farmers market is coming to Volta Park Fridays starting this week. The market will take place from 3pm to 6pm and will last until December 17th.
This will be the fourth farmers market to make a go of it in Georgetown in the recent past. The Rose Park market has been going on for quite a while on
Thursday Wednesday nights, and has grown to a robust size in the last several years in particular. The Glover Park-Burleith market ran at Hardy for years (which is technically in Georgetown, not Glover Park or Burleith), but as far as GM understands, it has stopped running permanently. Finally there has been a farmers market at Georgetown University, but it has not started up again yet since covid shut the campus down.
Volta Park generally has good foot traffic, particularly from the tennis and dog sets. So hopefully it will also thrive. Come on out Friday night to check it out!
