Dupont Circle Farmers Market 

One of my all time fav things to do is take a stroll around a farmer’s market.

On any given Saturday or Sunday you can wind up happening upon one in your area and that is part of the appeal.

On this particular weekend I decided that instead of brunch I wanted to visit one of my favorite farmer’s markets and get inspired for a healthy approach to my meals for the coming week.

  The escalator at Dupont Circle Metro (the Q Street entrance) always offers a picturesque view.  Even during inclement weather.
  The quote etched into the wall is from a poem by Walt Whitman – “The Dresser”.  It was selected to honor those caregivers from the earliest days of when the HIV crisis hit Washington DC.

Thus in silence in dreams’ projections,
Returning, resuming, I thread my way through the hospitals;

The hurt and wounded I pacify with soothing hand,

I sit by the restless all the dark night — some are so young;

Some suffer so much — I recall the experience sweet and sad . . .

  
  
  
  
  
    I had to…HA!
  
  You either love okra or you loathe okra…this beautiful fresh batch became roasted okra later that evening.  YUMMY!
  Foregoing traditional brunch doesnt mean you starve at a farmers market.  Either by way of numerous samples or paying for delicious fresh and often organic eats, you will leave satisfied.  Made on the spot – blueberry buckwheat pancakes!

Post Question: Where do you find culinary inspiration?

  1. I’ve never been to DuPont circle farmers market and I need to change that ASAP. I find culinary inspiration from cooking television channels. I especially like shows that go around the global trying favorites, those shows offer awesome traveling food guides and discovery of local unknowns. 😀
