Fairfax County’s Farmers Markets opened in May. There are 11 locations of the county’s Park Authority’s Farmers Markets.
Find fresh produce, meats, cheese, baked breads, honey, ice cream, sweets and cut flowers our region has to offer.
FCPA Farmers Markets are strictly “producer-only,” which means that all vendors must grow or produce everything they bring to market. This provides customers with the unusual opportunity to connect directly with farmers, who are eager to answer questions about their growing practices, animal care, recipes and more.
Most produce at local Farmers Markets is picked less than 24 hours before it arrives at market.
Buying from your local Farmers Markets helps to keep money circulating through the local economy.
Stop by any market to get your pledge card and make your commitment to spend $10 a week locally, and help generate $1.65 billion a year for Virginia’s economy.
The pledge card can also be found at http://www.vdacs.virginia.gov/vagrown/pdf/punchcard2.pdf.
Send in your pledge to be entered to win a Virginia grown gift basket.
Select locations accept SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps), including McCutcheon/Mount Vernon, Reston, Lorton, and Herndon farmers markets.
