About This Market:
The FRESHFARM Watkins Farmstand is located adjacent to Watkins Elementary School in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The farmstand is run by New Morning Farm (Hustontown, PA), a 95-acre Certified Organic vegetable farm. Farmers Jim and Moie Kimball Crawford have farmed organically for over 40 years, and from the start, all produce was direct-marketed in Washington, DC. The farm is equipped for year-round production with a heated greenhouse, two high-tunnel cold frames, and a packing shed with several refrigerated coolers. Their free-range laying hens live in a house with access to a fenced-in yard, where they enjoy pecking in the grass. New Morning Farm produces approximately 60 different crops, including berries and herbs in addition to most standard garden vegetables.
This market accepts SNAP/Food Stamps and WIC/Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program benefits and matches what you spend with free Matching Dollars. For more information, visit our Food Access Page.
