Farmers Markets Open for the
Farmers markets throughout the County begin their operations the first week in May. The markets are unique "producer-only" locally grown markets. All vendors come from within a 125-mile radius of Fairfax County and must grow or produce all the products they sell at the market. Vendors bring the freshest produce, meats, cheese, ice cream, breads, honey, sweets, cut flowers and plants to Fairfax County residents. Farmers markets in and near the Hunter Mill District are;
- Reston Lake Anne Plaza - Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon
- Vienna - Center Street - Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon
- Herndon Old Towne - Thursdays from 8 to 12:30 p.m.
- Oak Marr Park - Oakton - Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to noon.
The markets at Reston and Herndon are both accepting SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps). The SNAP at the market program is making strides to increase access to fresh foods for low income families. As an extra incentive, these two markets have implemented a "double bucks program" which matches up to $10 a day to be used on additional produce. For additional information on the markets, visit the Park Authority's Farmers Market webpage, and Vienna's Farmers Market site.
