West End Farmers Market

West End Farmer's Market Alexandria With a tagline of "Your Neighborhood, Your Market" it's no wonder that the West End Farmers Market is a bustling hive of activity on Sundays from May to November! Opening May 3, 2015, Sundays in Alexandria take on a flavor of "eat well and have fun" from 8:30am - 1:00pm.

Located at the south end of Ben Brenman Park, the market offers a wide variety of farmers, bakers, cooks and artisans. We don't know about you, but the character of the Farmers Market is a huge draw, in addition to the offerings available for purchase. All food vendors are local, including three farmers, one gardener, as well as representatives from two orchards. Add to the mix gourmet cheeses from Tommy, free range meat from Lambs Quarter Farm and flowers from Billie, you're sure to find everything on your shopping list.

Have a four legged friend? Barbie has everything you need for your pups and the Beatley Library sells used books. If that isn't enough to whet your appetite and interest, bring your compost and help the City of Alexandria create dirt!

If you weren't quite in the market for food and produce, look no further than the Farmers Market for gifts, home decor, toys, clothing items and more! Read more about all of the amazing vendors by visiting their site.

 

You can find the West End Farmers Market folks on Facebook or Twitter!
