Enjoy Memorial Day Brunch on the Potomac

Memorial Day is almost here, a holiday that for most marks the start of summer and a time of reverence in honor of our nation’s soldiers.

What better place to celebrate Memorial Day than in our nation’s capital, at DC’s waterfront on the banks of the Potomac River, and just two miles, as the crow flies, from Arlington National Cemetery.

Whether you’re joining the national celebrations across the DC area, the National Memorial Day Parade or the National Memorial Day Concert, watching the Rolling Thunder run, checking out the National Memorial Day Choral Festival at nearby Kennedy Center, or gathering with family and friends, pulling out your summer whites, and simply enjoying three days off… we hope you make your way to Farmer Fishers Bakers. We are serving our famous Farmers Market Buffet Brunch Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

Farmers Restaurant Group will welcome guests in all seven of our restaurants for the three-day long weekend. Voted as a top DC Best Brunch spot by Washingtonian Magazine readers and Washington City Paper’s Best of DC, our brunches are always a bounty of food and drinks we make from scratch primarily using ingredients from family farms across America.

Our brunch menus vary some by location. Our Farmers Market Buffet Brunch is served at Farmers Fishers Bakers on the Georgetown Waterfront, at Founding Farmers Tysons, Reston Station, and King of Prussia in Pennsylvania. It is also available at Farmers & Distillers in Mt Vernon Square. This festival of food is hard to beat with traditional breakfast fare such as buttermilk pancakes and bacon, a butchers table, a gardeners table ripe with fresh salads, and lots of passed decadence from eggs benedict and cracker crusted shrimp to spring rolls and house-made glazed doughnuts.

Founding Farmers DC and MoCo’s Founding Farmers in Potomac, MD have a sit-down, a la carte style service that includes our ever-popular Chicken & Waffles made breakfast-style with scrambled eggs, French toast, benedicts, buttermilk pancakes, poached egg hashes, and our amazing applewood smoked bacon.

Our brunch drinks are also fan favorites. In all of our restaurants, we make craft cocktails with our proprietary spirits and house-made syrups and mixers. From the best Bloody Mary in town, according to Washington City Paper, to our Fisher’s Tikis at Farmers Fishers Bakers, to our Whimsical Shared Cocktails at Farmers & Distillers, to our old fashioned scratch sodas, we can usually quench anyone’s thirst. Of course, we also serve our delicious Compass Coffee First Bake Blend, designed and roasted especially for our restaurants.

There are a lot of reasons to visit one of our farmer-owned restaurants over Memorial Day weekend. If you can, we recommend making a reservation. For specifics on our brunch hours and menus for each location, go to:
