Dalton Clower at his vegetable stand: He drives to Arlington from Romney, W.Va. — about two and a half hours. While not organic, Clower says he employs the IPM system — Integrated Pest Management — which starts with the lowest dose of pesticide and only raises the level when absolutely needed.

The Marymount Farmers Market opened despite a steady rain on Saturday, May 21. The market will be open from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays. Pies sold out, cheeses sold out, vegetables were doing a brisk business, and families gathered around the donut truck. It turned out to be a great place to run into old friends from the neighborhood, as the refrain of “I haven’t seen you in so long!” was heard several times. See www.marymountfarmersmarket.org.
