This Saturday, May 11th, marks the opening of DC’s long awaited, flagship Apple store at the historic Carnegie Library, located just blocks from Farmers & Distillers. 

Great news for locals and tourists alike, the shiny new Apple store, named the Apple Carnegie Library, is the result of a two-year restoration of our DC landmark – the Carnegie Library – creating a reimagined, modern center for learning. In addition to continuing to provide the innovative products and services that would make Apple founder and legend Steve Jobs proud, our new Apple store was designed as a space “where everyone is welcome.” In addition to a built-in DC History Center, the Apple Carnegie Library will host ongoing exhibits and programs designed to inspire and educate, including a StoryMakers Festival beginning on May 18th where local artists, photographers, filmmakers, digital artists, musicians, and more will be on hand to share their craft. The Apple Carnegie Library schedules will change daily.

A five-minute walk (or less) to Farmers & Distillers, we are welcoming our new Apple store to the neighborhood with a very special F&D Apple Donut. Inspired to celebrate all things Apple and the historic grandeur of the Carnegie Library, Chef Joe and our Pastry Chef, Chandler Raffa, crafted a decadent donut with the perfect balance of sweetness and spice. Maple-glazed on the outside, with a hit of red-hot cinnamon apple cream on the inside, we think it is the perfect way to welcome our new Apple friends and customers.

And the best part? Our Farmers & Distillers Apple donuts are FREE for Apple store shoppers!

So, if you have plans to check out the new Apple store anytime between Saturday, May 11th through Sunday, May 19th, walk the few blocks over to Farmers & Distillers, show us your Apple Carnegie Library receipt, and get our red-hot Apple Donut for free.

We’re open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or our decadent Farmers Market Buffet Brunch on Saturday and Sunday. As always, we recommend making a reservation.
