A brief description of the farmers’ market:

Housed on GW’s campus from April to November, the FreshFarm Foggy Bottom Market provides the GW and Foggy Bottom community with fresh produce from local as well as organic farms. Since in Spring 2012, the market has accepted GWorld, the official identification card of GW that holds GW student dining dollars.

Since Fall 2013, the GW GroW Garden has collaborated with the FreshFarm Market to promote the garden and the benefits of urban gardening at the market.
