Organized by the Fairfax County Park Authority, these Farmers' Markets offer a wide variety of freshly picked fruits, vegetables, herbs and cut flowers. There are also fresh eggs, baked goods, fresh pasta, honey, jam, teas and cider to purchase. Milk and cheese products, and homemade ice cream, along with a wide array of meat products, round out the edible delights offered. If gardening is an interest, many vendors have small plants at the beginning of the season, while other vendors have larger landscape plants for those ambitious projects. Master Gardener Plant Clinic on site, at both Mason District and Wakefield Park, to answer questions about plants in your landscape.
Vendors must grow, raise, or produce their own products within a 125 mile radius. The mission of these markets is to support local agriculture within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed area.
