Farmers Markets, Fairfax County Park Authority


Fairfax County Farmers Markets

The Fairfax County Farmers Markets operate 11 farmers markets across Fairfax County, under the Fairfax County Park Authority. By providing access to locally grown foods, our farmers market program strives to improve the health of Fairfax County citizens, support local food producers, and protect the environment.

Make sure to check out our Chef at Market demonstrations throughout the season, where the VCE's Master Food Volunteers demonstrate how to make easy recipes using market produce. We also support access to the farmers markets for low-income citizens, through our SNAP at Market Double Bucks program.

Our markets are strictly producer-only, meaning that all of our farmers and producers may only sell what they raise on their farms or make from scratch. We encourage our vendors to use local ingredients in the creation of their products as much as possible. Our farmers and producers all come from within a 125 mile radius of Fairfax County.
