Market to Pantry #13: Falls Church Farmers' Market, Virginia

Market to Pantry, Falls Church, Virginia farmers market

From Donna (Cooking + Praying), in McLean, Virginia:

You have to love an outdoor local farmers' market that stays open throughout the winter. Thank goodness for the hardy vendors at the Falls Church Farmers Market in Falls Church, Virginia!


Although half of the vendors do not participate during the coldest months -- for example, those who sell leafy greens and other fresh fruits and vegetables take the winter off -- the others who continue to participate make the weekly Saturday morning trip to the farm market a great local food adventure.

Its amazing what lengths people go to for supplying and buying fresh/homemade food. I feel that field of dreams, build it and they will come, phenom at work. Excellent!!!

Love your blog! I wish our markets would stay open in the winter.

What a fun looking farmer's market... and all of the vendors look like they are enjoying it, too! Thanks for sharing your pics!

wow! good stuff! I am on my way ;-)

I think that's great they still participate through the winter. They don't have to worry about keeping things cold or refrigerated, and the steamy food tastes all the better!

Our farmers market stays open year round, but I guess it's a little different here in Florida. Actually some of the booths close in the heat of the summer and come back in September.

Thanks for sharing!

In our NH/VT area, there are winter markets, but they are held indoors. Maybe after this winter, Falls Church will consider it?

Thanks for all your comments. The Falls Church market is wildly successful. You should see how crowded it can be at the peak of the growing season. It's the place to be on Saturday morning.
