Northern Virginia Living: Farmers Markets 2012 in Fairfax County

Who doesn’t love a good farmers market? Here in Northern Virginia, we certainly do! Summer is basically here and everyone in the area is excited about the prospect of long summer days full of bright sunshine and the opportunity to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables from the local Fairfax farmers markets that reopen for the season.

Fairfax County is pleased to host 11 farmers markets run by the Park Authority, offering products sold or produced by the vendors within a strict 125 mile radius of the county. There are so much to see and do at these farmers markets. They offer fresh fruit, vegetables, local wares and in some cases they offer so called “Plant clinics” by Master Gardeners – perfect for those who enjoy a bit of horticulture!
