One of the best things about living in Crystal City is the amazing farmer’s market. Sure, it’s for rich yuppies who have more many than sense, but I live in NoVa, so that’s basically everything here.
Every Tuesday, from 3:30 to 7:30, about two dozen vendors line a shady sidewalk to hawk their wares. There are lots of organic vegetables, but also artisanal cheeses, breads, and yes, delicious pickles.
Even … bacon.
Yes, we belong to a CSA, and yes, we have a Costco literally down the block, but it’s really nice to be able to pick up a few extra vegetables on a Tuesday evening without having to trek all the way to the grocery store.
