Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Winter Market – Saturday, January 4, 2020 10a-1p

At the request of shoppers and vendors, the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market will begin a Winter Market, January 4th through March 28th, 2020, including an extra special Leap Year Market on February 29th!  …maybe with veggies & fruits only available every four years???

This means the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market will be open every Saturday morning, year-round.  The Winter Market will be a little shorter, 10a – 1p, ….to prevent vendor frostbite.  So sleep in a little and wait to bring your shopping bags & compost until 10am.

The regular Market season will start back up on April 4th – December 26th, 9a – 1p.

Most of our regular vendors will continue into the Winter Market, with a few exceptions, and there may be a few new Winter-only pop-ups.  Some of the services on the Plaza stage may be limited during the Winter Market….. free bike clinic, parent-child engagement area, Friends of MtP Library cookbook sales, Market & SNAP token sales, and compost collection…. due to weather & temperature. Music performances may be limited as well.

The winter MtPFM compost collection will need help to continue.  The MtPFM Compost Collection is an unofficial site for the City’s Ward One collection site at the Columbia Heights Plaza, 14th & Park.  The winter MtPFM compost collection needs the help of a few weekly collection volunteers to watch over the collection bins during the Saturday morning Market, 10a-12:30p, and then organize 12:30ish bicycle/vehicle bins transportation to the Ward One site.  Donations could also cover costs of bags, bins, & transportation.  Lobbying city officials to expand the compost collection program is also important.  Contact Info@MtPFM.org if you can help on Saturdays, donate, or for more information.

Bundle up and continue to shop at the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market throughout the winter!
