Since I wrote earlier this week about my visit to the Brookside Farmers Market last Saturday, I thought it was fair to visit the Waldo Farmers Market as well. This is peak time for fresh, seasonal fruit and produce, and Brookside/Waldo residents are fortunate to have two markets to visit every week!
The Waldo Farmers Market is smaller, but offers similar vendors that grow USDA Certified organic produce. I saw all the usual vegetables: kale, lettuces, beans, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes, corn. There were also fresh blackberries and beautiful, ripe peaches! Prices were similar to the Brookside Farmers Market.
A few items available here that I didn’t see at the Brookside market: Mean Vegan ice cream, all natural dog treats and home made soap.
The Waldo Farmers Market is conveniently located at 303 W 79th St, next to Habitat ReStore, and is open every Wednesday from 3-7pm.
