The USDA Farmers Market located outside the USDA Headquarters in Washington, DC is the Department’s own “living laboratory” for farmers market operations across the country. Its mission is to promote local food and build community where we live and work.

USDA’s Agriculture Marketing Service has operated this outdoor market for 20 years. The market is held May through October just off the National Mall and is well attended by USDA employees, other federal workers, tourists, and local residents.
