It may be getting a bit colder, but there is great news for those who love farmers markets. The Fairfax County Farmers Markets have extended the season at three popular market locations. The Reston Farmers Market will remain open until Dec. 3, 2022; the Burke Farmers Market is open until Dec. 17, 2022; and the McCutcheon/Mt. Vernon Farmers Market will be open until Dec. 21, 2022.
Shopping at your local farmers market through the fall and into the winter is a great way to celebrate all that the season has to offer, while supporting local farmers, businesses, and communities.
The Fairfax County Farmers Markets will welcome a handful of new vendors to the markets during the extended season. Our farmers and producers will continue to bring an abundance of winter squash, greens, apples, potatoes, fresh-baked breads, locally raised meats, and unique prepared foods. Extended season vendors will bring new products, such as macaroons, bagels, kombucha, Moroccan sauces and more. Be sure to visit Burke, Reston and McCutcheon/Mt. Vernon to support your favorite vendors through the season, and to welcome our new vendors.
