Ward 8 Farmers' Market

3200 6th Street SE.
Washington, DC 20020

Mission:

The Ward 8 Farmers' Market Cooperative is dedicated to providing and improving the healthy food options for the residents of Ward 8 and nearby communities.  The goal is for people from these communities to eat fresher, more natural and nutritious foods, and adopt healthier lifestyles for the longterm benefit of the individuals, their children and families, and society.  An important component of achieving this goal involves providing foods grown geographically closer to where the foods are eaten.  Foods lose nutritional value and wholesomeness when they travel long distances and are stored for long periods of time.  Similarly, food loses value (and can actually become harmful) when they are processed.  The solution is to reconnect the local farmer to the community that will eat his or her produce!  This is our mission.  We will achieve this goal with the help of educational programs and with good food.  We measure success when a child chooses (and is able to choose) an apple over a bag of chips or candy.  We measure success when parents come to our market, or an affiliated corner store, and can find the ingredients for a superior dinner.  We measure success when seniors can remember what food tasted like as a child, and can eat that food again, bettering and extending their lives.
