Crossroads Farmers Market is a lively community gathering space for people of all backgrounds and incomes, where families, foodies, neighbors, gardeners, live-music fans, and coffee lovers meet every Wednesday afternoon to eat lunch and stock up on fresh ingredients for the week ​ahead. ​This producers-only market features a range of vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, honey, coffee, seed and nut snacks​, Central American herbs like chipil​ín, and tasty prepared foods, as well as food demos and tastings, kids’ activities, live music, and other events.

The Crossroads Farmers Market provides access to fresh, local, and healthy foods from local vendors to people from all backgrounds and incomes living in the neighborhoods of the Takoma Park/Langley Park Crossroads. Crossroads was the first market in the US to launch double-value coupons called “Fresh Checks” through which the market matches federal nutrition benefits. The market creates a lively, safe community gathering space for individuals and families of all backgrounds. Each week, our Crossroads Concert Series provides live music from local community musicians sharing sounds from around the globe. Special events, including Kid’s Day/Día del Niño, Earth Day, and cultural heritage days, are held throughout the market season.
