Fodor's Review

This market is one of the remaining vestiges of Montgomery County's agricultural society. In the midst of the Great Depression, women gathered goods from their gardens to sell in Bethesda to residents of the District of Columbia and its growing suburbs. Today the tradition continues. Baked goods, fresh fruits and vegetables, crafts, and flea-market goods are still sold in and around this low, white building in the midst of office high-rises. (A view of the market in the

1930s is depicted in a mural on the wall of the Bethesda Post Office at 7400 Wisconsin Avenue.)
