Shopping Guidelines

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:

  • No more than two family members in the market
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all people over two years of age wear a mask or face covering over the mouth and nose in public settings, and please stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness
  • Pets are prohibited
  • A 6-foot distance must be maintained from all other individuals
  • Only one customer may approach each vendor at a time
  • Customers may not touch produce or any goods offered for sale, and pre-boxing and pre-bagging is encouraged
  • Credit or debit card payments preferred
  • Point of sale keypads should be disinfected before each use, and to the extent tools or equipment must be shared, they should also be disinfected before and after use
  • Tables should be routinely disinfected every two hours, and all vendors and individuals should have access to alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Vendor sampling is discouraged
  • Do not linger—get in and get out quickly
  • Designated entrances and exits must be used

Pre-Order

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 list of all the vendors at our markets that take pre-orders and their website links. We encourage you to pre-order so that your time at the market is quick and easy. We hope you find this helpful.

Community Use Areas

The Park Authority welcomes members of the public to use its parks 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 and near its concert and summer entertainment venues.

The Fairfax County Park Authority has established Community Use Areas where individuals, nonprofits and other community groups may conduct non-commercial expressive activities. This online guide can assist in locating the Community Use Areas and understanding the rules governing the Community Use Areas. Please note that all Community Use Areas must comport with social distancing rules.

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.

Fairfax Farmers Markets are on Instagram! Find us at @fairfaxfarmmarkets.
