2015 NoVA Farmers Markets

NoVA Farmers Market

We are so fortunate to live in an area where markets are plentiful during the summer. I visit the Burke market (Saturdays) frequently. The Burke market has bakeries, produce stands, butchers, florists, a salsa vendor, a couple cheese vendors, and last year there was even a while-you-wait ice cream vendor. The Reston market also has had an artisan section with clothes, bags, jewelry, and other assorted items. Please share your favorite part of the market near you in the comments!
