From our friends at Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown...

Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown, the leading luxury hotel in the capital city is introducing its very own Capella farmer’s market, from August through September, becoming the first hotel in D.C. to do so. The Capella farmer’s market is a partnership with Northern Neck Farm, a farm that has a 50-year history and is located in the agriculturally rich region of Virginia. Guests and locals alike can peruse the fresh produce at the Capella Farmer’s Market the second and fourth Saturday of the month from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM.

Located at the entrance area of the hotel, the Capella farmer’s market aligns with the philosophy of the hotel group’s commitment to sustainable ingredients and farming. The hotel’s Grill Room helmed by award-winning Executive Chef Frank Ruta features a seasonal menu and ingredients sourced from the best local and regional farms including Northern Neck Farm.
