Montgomery Farm Women’s Cooperative Market Turns 80
Market goers enjoys live music and more during the birthday celebration.
Born out of the depression, the Montgomery Farm Women's Cooperative Market turned 80 this weekend.
The market was founded by seven women in 1932 when Wisconsin Avenue was nothing but a small dirt road. Plagued by the hardships of the depression, the market was opened to sell produce and farm goods.
Now eight decades later, the site still buzzes four days a week providing baked good, produce as well as flea market items. For the 80th birthday celebration, market goers enjoyed a live band, face painting, raffles and goodies provided by the market vendors.
The indoor market is open Wednesday, Fridays and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The outside market is open Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., weather permitting.
