For many people, a day doesn’t really start until after they’ve finished at least one cup of coffee. That’s just one reason why the newly opened Lost Sock Roasters is an exciting addition to the area. As they explain it, they offer “what you’re looking for every morning.”
In this case, that every morning something is specialty coffee, roasted in small batches and committed to quality and sustainability. With a single origin latte, house espresso, or finca bruhwer pour over, you might not want to return to your own coffee pot going forward. And, as one reviewer points out, “they offer sandwiches and real food to go [with] their amazing coffee.” That “real food” includes pastries, like most cafes, but also features empanadas, toast, sandwiches, and other treats.
“If you love coffee,” writes one customer, “Lost Socks is worth your time.” If you love knowing your coffee is made with care and a commitment to the environment, you’ll love Lost Socks. Or, if you simply want to experience a delicious empanada beside your caffeine of choice, a visit to Lost Socks is an absolute must.Read More
With a farmers market experience, there’s an awful lot to love. But, in many cases, there’s one disappointing quality—you can only take advantage of your favorite vendors for a short portion of the year. Thankfully, that isn’t the case when it comes to the Takoma Park Farmers Market.
Instead, you can enjoy all that the Takoma Park Farmers Market has to offer every Sunday throughout the year. That means you can pick up your favorite bread at Atwaters Bakery in mid-June or choose the perfect cider donuts at Audia’s Farm and Nursery come autumn.

You won’t need to wait until warmer weather to check out your top-choice vendors. Need to restock your favorite hemp products? Breezy Meadows Farm is waiting during any season.
Whatever your favorite vendors and products at Takoma Park Farmers Market, you can rest assured that they’ll be there for you at any time of year. And, best of all, you can take advantage of the farmers market experience whatever the season.Read More
