Watermelon Season

I think about food all the time because, well, I love food. And while I used to think watermelon was a watery blah fruit, since purchasing local melons I've found it to be crisp, syrupy and deeply sweet.

The Post just published a delightful article on melons, (I kinda hate canteloupe but I can get down with honeydew), so I just wanted to let you know that the best ones in DC are at the Mt. Pleasant Farmer's Market on Saturdays.

here's the location...and they also have the best baguettes!

Neighborhood: Mount Pleasant
Intersection of Mt. Pleasant and Kilbourne St
Washington, DC 20010

a lot calmer than dupont circle, and less crowded.
