The Fairfax County Farmers Markets operate 11 farmers markets across Fairfax County, under the Fairfax County Park Authority. The markets are strictly producer-only, meaning that all of the farmers and producers may only sell what they raise on their farms or make from scratch. Vendors come from West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Call 703-642-0128 or visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/farmersmarkets.
