Located right next to the Route 83 exit with Baltimores emphamis crocodile mural, the Mill Valley Center offers only locally grown produce from the Chesapeake Bay Watershed area and garden supplies sourced from the U.S. You can also find fair-trade coffee, plants from local nurseries in addition to a host of other environmentally conscious small businesses.

Takoma Park Farmer’s Market

The Takoma Park Farmer’s Market consists of about two dozen producers that line Laurel Avenue every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It began in 1982 as both Washington, DC’s first Sunday market and one of the first "producers-only" markets. Everything sold at the self-governing market is fresh and local – produced by the people who sell it. Products sold at the market must be produced within a 125-mile radius of Takoma Park, meaning some non-regional products like bananas must be excluded. Visit the website for more information on the market or the participating farms.
