Groff’s Content Farm:  We will have fresh duck at Market!  We also have some new grassfed beef bologna and snack sticks made without preservatives or added nitrates.  As one customer said, they are weirdly good; I personally can’t stop eating them.  Kind of summer sausage-like would be great on crackers if you can get them that far.  We have lots of ground beef and bacon for the perfect grassfed bacon cheese burger paired with cheese from Spring Gap Mountain of course.  Also Bratwurst and keilbasa which are outstanding grilled on a bun topped with Number 1 Sons sauerkraut.   www.groffscontentfarm.com

Very tasty in rice bowls, or as a soup topping.

 

Summer has been long, so the Daikons that Next Step Produce planted for us are 3.5” long right now. We do plan to bring back our winter radish ferments/pickles; Dilly Daikon and Honey Habanero.  We’re in a larger space now, in Ivy City in DC!, so we’ve also put additional cucumbers down this year and will have them hopefully through Thanksgiving.  number1sons.com/

Walking for Food Justice  –  On Saturday, October 14th, hundreds of people across the city are taking action and joining the Grocery Walk. Walking to downtown Anacostia from the nearest grocery store– over 2 miles away– followed by a rally calling for city investment in access to healthy food for all.  Meet Tony, a Ward 8 senior in DC, who travels 45 minutes each way for groceries.

 

Access to healthy food should not be a luxury. Yet East of the River, limited options for buying fresh, affordable food restricts people’s ability to make healthy choices for their families.  On October 14th, the community is coming together to say enough is enough.  Walk with us and share the event on social media.  Because access to healthy food is a basic human right.

 

The Grocery Walk is taking place on October 14 at 10 a.m. We will meet in the Giant parking lot (1535 Alabama Avenue SE) and walk to the United Black Fund (2500 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE).  http://grocerywalkdc.org

Stop by the table near the Joan of Arc statue on Saturday and say hello!  You can register to win free tickets to our 2017-18 season at concertopera.org/outside or in-person at the event!   https://www.facebook.com/events/1923471434569048/   http://concertopera.org

Dance in the Round: Circle as Sanctuary! – In light of recent attacks on our communities, there is a special program called Dance in The Round based on the dance form known as ‘garba.’  The word ‘garbh’ in Gujarati means a “womb” or a space of nurture.  We envision Dance in the Round as a space for us to come together, experience collective empowerment and create sanctuary – a safe and nourishing home inside a circle.  Sunday, October 8th, 2:30 – 4:30 PM; Columbia Heights Civic Plaza (14th & Park Rd) — if it rains, we will be in La Casa, 3166 Mt. Pleasant St.

 

Don’t worry if you’ve never danced garba before!  We begin with an opening warm-up and lesson, as well as guided participation in the dance with MLOV volunteers and partners who happen to also be dancers!  Come and go and dance as you are able — and learn more about MLOV’s current demands to uphold Sanctuary in DC! Many Languages One Voice (MLOV) mlovdc.org
