Increasing access to fresh, sustainably produced, local food and building a healthier community in the heart of Washington, DC.
Help Low-Income Families at the Columbia Heights Farmers Market: Donate to our Spring 2014 Indiegogo Campaign
The Columbia Heights Community Marketplace operates a vibrant farmers market in one of Washington DC’s most socioeconomically diverse neighborhoods, and works to ensure that all community members have access to fresh, healthy food. Since 2010, we have provided over $55,000 in matching funds for low-income customers who shop at the market using federal nutrition programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Women, Infants, and Children Farmers Market Nutrition Program (WIC), and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (Senior FMNP).
