White House Farmers Market Gets The Green Light

Get ready for an open-air farmers market near the most famous home in all the world.

With a little help from the first family, a nonprofit group called Fresh Farm Markets, has won approval for a city permit to close Vermont Avenue Northwest between H and I Streets to traffic for its newest market near the White House. From AP:

Bernadine Prince, a co-director of Fresh Farm Markets, said she did not know whether First Lady Michelle Obama would show up for the market’s opening day or whether any produce from the White House garden would be available for sale. (Eighteen local farmer producers will sell fruits, vegetables, pasture-raised meats and eggs, cheese and baked goods, she said.)

While the White House refused to confirm the extent of its involvement in the market’s creation, Sam Kass — a White House assistant chef and a former personal chef for the Obamas — did show up at a community meeting last week to offer support for the venture.

For those interested, the market will be open on Thursdays from Sept. 17 through Oct. 29.
