Good News for 14th and U

Posted in District of Columbia by melissamccart on April 30, 2009

This coming Saturday will be the season’s opening for the farmer’s market at 14th and U. 

I’m especially excited about Stefano Frigerio’s The Copper Pot, where the former Maestro and Mio chef will be selling house made ravioli, pastas, sauces, jams and preserves. According to 14th and U Farmers Market coordinator, Robin Schuster:

Maestro quality pastas at farmers’ market prices:  artisanal gnocchi, linguine, spaghetti, cavatelli,  sausage ravioli, rabbit ravioli, mushroom ravioli, ricotta-spinach ravioli.  And his famous sauces:  last year he canned 800 jars of late- harvest local tomato sauce.  He has added roasted shallots and Barolo sauce and smoky farmer bacon and parmesan sauces for his pastas.  

Stefano loves to make locally sourced jams with attitude.    Concord grape with a little grappa, peach and prosecco, vanilla and strawberry, white figs and balsamic, fresh apple jam.    Next week: Homemade soups to take home.  From whatever is best at the market.

Also take note. Breadline has been replaced by Loic Feillet, who bakes for Citronelle and CityZen. Dolcezza gelato, Keswick Creamery, Truck Patch and Mountain View will all be returning. And, from what I gather, it’s still a dog friendly farmers market. From 9am-1pm, rain or shine.
