Please do not come to the markets if you are feeling sick or if you know you have been exposed to coronavirus in the prior 14 days. Market shoppers will be asked to comply with Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s social distancing orders and safety guidelines and all COVID-19 health and social distancing requirements designed to protect customers, market staff and volunteers:
Currently, our website does not include links to pre-order from vendors who attend our farmers markets. To help you with pre-ordering, we have attached a listing of all the vendors at our markets that take pre-orders and their website links. We are trying to encourage customers such as yourself to pre-order so that your time at the market is quick and easy. We hope you find this helpful.
The Park Authority welcomes members of the public to use its parks for shopping at its farmers markets, as well as for engaging in expressive activities. To maximize the availability of the parks to all users and to promote community safety, the Park Authority has set aside Community Use Areas at its farmers markets. These areas are subject to certain rules, and social distancing restrictions.
This online guide can assist in locating the Community Use Areas and understanding the rules governing the Community Use Areas, including those related to required social distancing.
The Park Authority is evaluating the operations, staffing needs, volunteer resources, and other considerations at the open markets. The agency is hoping those market evaluations will pave the way for the opening of all 10 FCPA farmers markets.
More details will be coming, including SNAP benefits information.

Fairfax County operates 10 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.
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.
