Crossroads Farmers Market opened in 2007 to give residents of the Takoma-Langley Crossroads area better access to fresh, local produce. Together with the Takoma Park Farmers Market, it became the first farmers market in Maryland to accept SNAP (food stamps), WIC, and senior assistance vouchers and the first market nationwide to use private funds to match food benefits with market "Fresh Checks."
This producers-only market is held every Wednesday from 11am-3pm from April through November. We feature local fruits and vegetables from local sustainable growers, local artisans, Latin American herbs, prepared foods, and baked goods, as well as health screenings, children's activities, and live music.
April 18 is the first day of the market's 2018 season--our 12th!--and it will run through November 28. Come by and use your SNAP/Independence Card or WIC benefits and receive additional Fresh Checks to double your purchase of locally produced fruits and vegetables. And check out our new LUNCH vendors! Cash, checks, and credit/debit cards are also accepted.
Market Vendors on LocalHarvest
serves a broadly diverse immigrant community, bilingual vendors, music and festive atmosphere
Because they offer good food, fresh fruit, veggies and culturally relevant produce to their community. And they accept WIC and SNAP. So they are not exclusive or limiting to the community they serve, but inclusive and supportive of all those who want to eat good, fresh, just-picked produce regardless of their financial status. This is what a farmer's market should be.
