Celebrate #BTWD in NoMa

Whether your two-wheeled commute starts in NoMa, ends here, or just passes through our streets, we hope you'll help us celebrate Bike to Work Day this May 17. Find us in the Wunder Garten space (1105 First St. NE) from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. If you registered for a T-shirt, we'll have it for you. Otherwise, we invite you to stop by for refreshments and information from our sponsors and participating vendors: Qualia Coffee, Streets Market, Galley Foods, Nando's, Yoga NoMa, REI, WABA, Commuter Connections, Amtrak, and Nift. See you on Friday!

Our Farmers Market Returns!

Sunday mornings are for relaxing: sleep in, read the paper, walk the dog, stroll through the farmers market … that's right: the FRESHFARM NoMa Market is back for a second year, but in a new location. Starting May 19, you'll find these vendors every Sunday morning from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the corner of 2nd and L NE:

  • Bri’s Brookland Creamery / small-batch ice cream
  • Deep Roots Farm (formerly Rainbow Hill Farm) / organic vegetables, fruits, flowers, chicken & duck eggs
  • Holly Brook Farm / heritage and pasture-raised pork, lamb, chicken, turkey, beef & eggs
  • Lost Sock Roasters / locally roasted, directly traded coffee
  • Pickled Heads / handmade pickled vegetables & hot sauce
  • Pleitez Produce Farm / field vegetables

Not only that, but there will be special events taking place during the market all summer long. The fun starts this Sunday: At 9:00 a.m., we’ll be kicking off the market with free coffee for shoppers (while supplies last) and acoustic music from Calvin Thomas. At 10:00 a.m., grab your mat and get your breath and blood moving with a free 60-minute yoga class led by Yoga NoMa. At noon, bring your pup dressed as your favorite farmers market item for a pet parade and costume contest judged by Friends of NoMa Dogs. All four-legged participants will go home with treats from Otis Farms, and first- and second-place prizes will be awarded to two dogs (and their owners).

FRESHFARM NoMa Market is sponsored by Union Place

Hoyas & Eagles Team Up at 55 H NW 

In case you've been curious about what will happen to the empty lot at 55 H St. NW, wonder no more: Georgetown University has entered into a long-term lease agreement with site owner Gonzaga College High School to use the parcel for a future university building — most likely student housing. (Georgetown's law school, School of Continuing Studies, and another, newly acquired property on First Street NW are all just blocks from the site.) Learn more in this press release.
