Regulars at the Bethesda Farm Women's Market say that if you make it a habit to do your weekly grocery shopping here, you'll be well on your way to transforming a chore into a delight. You see, the Bethesda Farm Women's Market combines a traditional farmers market with a robust trade in local and artisanal handicrafts. What that means for you is that with a single trip to the market you can pick up lettuce, tomatoes, and freshly-baked bread, as well as a brightly colored pashmina scarf, hand-made jewelry, and precision-carved wooden figurines.
If you're not in the mood for cooking, You can also pick up a number of prepared foods like deep-dish pizzas from Pi-Pizzeria, sweet apple and cinnamon crepes from La Crepe Gourmande, and an order of grilled steak tacos topped with pico de gallo and a bit of guacamole from the Nicholas Catering truck. It's a great way to spend an afternoon in Bethesda!
