Farmers Markets



Fairfax County operates 10 farmers markets across Fairfax County under the Fairfax County Park Authority. The mission of the Fairfax County Farmers Markets is to provide residents access to locally grown products and create market opportunities for area farmers and food producers.

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, with a few exceptions for hard to find products.

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.
