LRFM Vendor Spotlight

Mesisam the Ethiopian Eatery of Washington, D.C.

Mesisam the Ethopian Eatery is a local D.C. eatery that specializes in Ethiopian cuisine for sampling at the Market or taking home to savor later.  Featuring numerous vegetarian options, including vegan choices, ranging from lentils to collard greens to eggplant to cabbage, as well as chicken dishes native to Ethiopia -- all served with (or more authentically, on top of) spongy injera (Ethiopian bread), Mesisam is a terrific addition to the Lubber Run Farmers Market.  Welcome our newest vendor by stopping by to sample the goodness!
