As the government shutdown continues, Martha’s Table is responding to the increased need for healthy food to support thousands of federal workers as well as employees in DC industries – restaurant, food trucks, federal contracts, etc. – who are feeling the effects of the furlough. Guests are welcome to shop for fresh produce and pantry items at our no-cost weekday markets located at both our SE & NW locations:

  • Open Monday-Friday from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm.
  • Effective Tuesday, January 22:
