So, I can't in good conscience recommend this market to anyone. Well, let's say you can't leave a one block radius of 15th and Alberta, and you really want to go to a farmers market, then sure, this is the farmers market for you. But the rest of you, you with motility: don't bother.
When I was there, there were six booths, and about six people milling around. There was gorgeous bread, with someone who appeared to be trying to will me away, and a cheese booth, where the vendor spent the entire time on his cellphone. Unlike other farmers markets, there were no samples, no friendly chatter from vendors, really just not a whole hell of a lot to make you want to buy anything.
