The Columbia Heights Community Marketplace launched for the second time in almost a decade in 2010 as a vehicle to bring local, sustainably grown food and art made by local artists to the people of Columbia Heights, the District’s most densely populated neighborhood and among its most socioeconomically diverse.
Our vibrant farmers market, Festibucks matching incentives program that helps low-income residents get more food with their nutrition benefits, and our urban agriculture educational work are promoting the health of Columbia Heights and its people.
We view the Marketplace as a space for people from across the District to meet, mingle, and share in local food, fun, art and entertainment. One might say the Marketplace has become a true festivus, a CHFestivus for all of us!
Do you love the Marketplace as much as we do? Please volunteer a couple hours on Saturday to help us set-up/break-down the community/vendor tents, be a chef’s assistance, work our community table by helping to promote the Marketplace’s programs, or help plan our seasonal events.
Programming at the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, a 501c3 non-profit organization (EIN 27-3098311) is made possible by the generosity of 501©3 organizations, federal grants, charitable foundations, neighborhood partners, and individual donors like you.
