Fairfax County Farmers Markets 2015

From May to November, Fairfax County's 11 farmers markets come to life with a feast for the senses. Freshly picked fruits and vegetables, cut flowers, freshly baked bread and pastries are available, along with creamy artisan cheeses, fresh eggs, meats and other edible delights. Some vendors also carry gardening plants of all sizes.

All products sold are produced by vendors within 125 miles of Fairfax County so you can be assured that the produce you purchase at Park Authority Farmers Markets is fresh, locally-grown and consistently good. Stop by and shop at your local Farmers Market today!

Four Farmer’s Market locations accept SNAP/EBT cards for payment of goods: McCutcheon/Mount Vernon, Lorton, Herndon and Reston. See below for a full list of markets and directions to each.
