As more and more farmers markets appear in neighborhoods throughout the area, some farmers struggle to keep up with the demand, and market managers devise new ways to keep customers coming back.
As the localized food movement picks up steam, city dwellers have to get creative in order to jump on board. Luckily, the D.C. region is fairly ahead of the curve when it comes to one component that provides fresh, local produce – the farmers market.

At Wednesday's market, University students and faculty enjoyed fresh cut flowers, crisp baguettes, loose leaf teas and spicy salsas.

Convinced that people weren't ready to part with her authentic Belgian specialties and widely popular paella, she arranged for her food to be available for pick-up at Jean Pierre Antiques (26th and P St.) during the same day and time as the market. The idea was to have people call or email their order forms at any point throughout the week, and on Wednesdays from 3 to 6 p.m., Coats would be ready with her soups, turnovers, crepes, paella and most notably, her …
