While the Farmers Markets are supervised by the Community Horticulture Office, based at Green Spring Gardens, most patrons do not realize that the daily operations of the Markets are the responsibility of volunteer Market Masters. These volunteers are essential to the development and promotion of the Markets. As liaisons between all of the participants in the Market program, they provide valuable advice to the Community Horticulture Office on ways to develop and improve the program. Their varied backgrounds bring a unique style to the individual markets.

SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, connects needy citizens to fresh, local foods. We offer a matching dollar program as incentive to shoppers. We currently have SNAP programs at our McCutcheon/ Mount Vernon, Reston, Lorton and Herndon locations. Volunteers run the SNAP booths where customers run their EBT cards to redeem tokens to spend at market. The program is collaboration between Fairfax County, Arcadia, and Herndon-Reston FISH.
If you are interested in volunteering for SNAP at the Herndon or Reston locations, please visit the Herndon-Reston FISH website.
If you are interested in volunteering for SNAP at the McCutcheon/ Mount Vernon or Lorton locations, please contact the Farmers Market Coordinator, Julia Deupree.
