CFW's markets, food access programs, and community partnerships help create safe, welcoming public spaces for all to enjoy local food and build trust within their communities no matter age, background, or income. MARKET SHARE CFW offers a Market Share / CSA program for customers who want a regular weekly supply of the freshest local produce and other foods from our vendors. Social Impact shares are available! FOOD ACCESS We manage a variety of incentive and educational programs to ensure that all community members can access more healthy food. All donations to our Bonus Bucks program, which matches Federal benefits spent on fruits & vegetables at the market, are tax deductible.

We have exciting news! At our core, Community Foodworks is motivated by our mission to build an equitable and resilient food system, where all residents and families can access and afford fresh produce, and local farmers can support their livelihoods and sustainable farming and labor practices with a stable source of income. Today, we are taking an exciting step to deepen that mission and bring it to a wider audience:

We are proud to announce Community Foodworks plans to merge with FRESHFARM Markets that our Executive Director, Hugo Mogollon, will lead the new, consolidated organization under the FRESHFARM name.

Given the close alignment in mission, this merger is a natural, strategic step. We are both excited and convinced that this will allow us to bring fresh produce to more people in the region and continue to provide farmers the support they require to ensure sustainability. Join us in giving a huge congratulations to Hugo as he leads this next chapter for us!

Looking for a market this weekend? Shop our Sunday markets Gainesville Farmers Market by Community Foodworks and Tysons Farmers Market by Community Foodworks from 10-2pm!

Need help getting to the market? Here are several ways you can get to the Tysons Farmers Market easily and fuss free!

Parking:
The two closest parking garages to the market are Garage D and Garage E. Both are located along Tysons One Pl. We recommend parking in Garage E as it is directly connected to the Plaza.

Getting to the Market from Garage E:
If you have parked in Garage E, getting to the Market should be a breeze. Take the stairs or elevator to the 4th level. Walk west toward Barrel & Bushel. There is a bridge that connects the garage to Barrel & Bushel. If you follow the path around the restaurant, it will lead you out directly on the Plaza where the Market is located.

Getting to the Market from Garage D:
Once you have parked, exit the garage toward Lord & Taylor on Tysons One Pl. The VITA building should be across the street. Carefully cross the street to the VITA building. Enter the building to take the elevator up to the Pavilion. Once you exit the VITA building on the Pavilion level, the market should be on your left.

Getting to the Market from inside the Mall:
If you are coming to the Market from inside the mall, go to the 2nd level. The exit onto the Plaza is between Victoria's Secret and Zara.

Thank you for your patience as we get adjusted to the new market location. We hope these directions will help you find your way to the market and we're excited to see you there!

Thank you for having us Slow Food DC Patagonia. We were thrilled to be part of the panel and learned so much about the Farm Bill from the experts at National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, National Farmers Union, The Young Farmers Coalition, and our local partner DC Greens.

Many of us realize that policymaking is an important part of a good, clean, and fair food and farm system, but it's not always easy to understand how we as individuals can get involved. On April 3, Slow Food DC co-hosted a policy panel event with Patagonia's M Street store with the goal of transforming eaters into "ag-vocates."

The panel event, "From 'Farm Bill or Bust' to 'Farm Bill, Now What?'", walked attendees through the next steps in sustainable ag advocacy now that the 2018 Farm Bill has been signed into law. We were thrilled to have an engaged audience that were excited to learn about policy from our featured speakers: the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, Community Foodworks, National Young Farmers Coalition, DC Greens, and National Farmers Union. Sustainable snacks and beverages were provided by Patagonia Provisions and HoneyFlower Foods.

I have been going to our local Farmers Market in Chantilly to support local vendors and their families, and every since foodworks purchased the contract to manage, it has been one of the worse managed markets ever, we are down to only a few vendors supporting this market do to the poor management provided by foodworks. Its very disappointing for both the vendors and our community when you have vendors sign contracts they should be obligated to show up. Where is your presence and support for our community?
How can you get fresh produce while helping to feed others? Read Christine Miller ANC 1A05's article about Community Foodworks at the Columbia Heights Farmers Market - DC! https://locallydc.com/community-foodworks/
Looking forward to seeing some of you on Monday!
