Farmers Markets Vendor Information

The Fairfax County Park Authority operates 10 farmers markets across Fairfax County, Va. Our farmers market program strives to increase access to local food, improve the health of Fairfax citizens, support local food producers and protect the environment. Join us in this mission by becoming a vendor in our markets!

Our markets are strictly producer-only, meaning you must grow, raise or make from scratch all products you sell.  Distributors, re-selling or brokers are strictly prohibited. All produce grown, meat raised and other products made must be within 125 mile radius of Fairfax County.

The Fairfax County Farmers Markets vendor selection process is competitive, based on each market's individual needs. Not all vendors that apply will receive a space at markets. Spaces for baked goods vendors and conventional farmers are particularly competitive. This is especially true for our Saturday markets: Reston and Burke.

Fairfax County Farmers Markets only allow the sale of food items, and do not offer space to crafts vendors or other commercial businesses. Community Use Areas are available directly outside of our markets for non-profits, political organizations, and community groups to use on a first come, first served basis.
