The Glover Park-Burleith farmers market is midway through our season and will be open through November 17. Come find us in the Hardy Middle School parking lot every Saturday morning—rain or shine—from 9 am to 1 pm. We have a great line up of exciting pop-up vendors, artists, musicians, and activities to accompany a core group of vendors offering delicious fresh fruits, veggies, meats, baked goodies, and other lovely treats! We also host pop up vendors selling prepared foods, crafts, and other items—make sure to sign up for our newsletter or check out the Burleith and Glover Park listservs to stay updated!

With our weekly Kid’s Corner, the market is a place the whole family can enjoy! Your kids can visit Chubzy the Clown to get a face painting or balloon animal, or just sit down, color, and play with a variety of activities under the kids tent. We offer new activities and special guests throughout the season that will be announced each week.

Each week from 10 am to noon, a local musician provides upbeat tunes for your market day. The schedule for the rest of the fall is below.

Please stop by the information tent to introduce yourself or chat. I can answer any questions you might have about upcoming events, volunteering opportunities, etc. This season all of our vendors take credit cards so there is no need to purchase credit card tokens like past seasons. We do match EBT and WIC money up to $20, and this will be available at the tent as well.
