Straw Stick & Brick Delicatessen Pulled pork sandwiches are hard to resist anywhere, but they’re especially difficult to turn down at the Straw Stick & Brick stand at the Dupont farmers market. Each week, the Georgia Avenue shop brings its finest cured meats, sausages and barbecue to the market. Grab a sandwich and eat as you shop or relax with your lunch on the lawn. (Courtesy Facebook)
Pastries and Breads  Of course, it’s not difficult to find a number of great stands serving freshly made breads, pastries and sweets, but make sure you get to the market early before the baked goods sell out. Looking for a fresh loaf perfect for a picnic? Swing by Talking Beads for old world European breads. Craving something on the sweeter side? Baklava Couture comes to the market with a variety of baked goods, including baklava. (Courtesy Facebook)
