Takoma Park is a very diverse community at the D.C.-Maryland border and is often called “Granola Park” because the community has a very active green movement. The Takoma Park farmer’s market on Laurel Avenue is very popular with the usual produce along with breads, pasture-raised meats and artisan cheese. It’s open Sundays year-round.
Many of the homes here are free standing, single family homes, from simple colonials to grand Victorians, and the area has been attracting an increasing number of young professionals and young families.
