Kingstowne Farmers Market Alexandria, Va 22315

Kingstowne Farmers MarketThe Kingstowne Farmers Market takes place every Friday from 4pm to 7pm starting May 1st and running through October 30th. The market is centrally located in the parking lot of Kingstowne Towne Center in front of the Giant Food and Fiona’s Irish Pub. There's still plenty of time to visit this season and enjoy farm to table food.

 

The Kingstowne Farmers Market is welcoming from the time you walk up. Vendors are very friendly and it’s fun to stroll through and browse before making your decisions. The produce and vegetables are so fresh and their flavors are robust. There’s nothing quite like a fresh tomato or fresh picked blackberries. It’s not just veggies and produce at the Kingstowne Farmers Market though, you’ll also find many other goodies as you browse. A Bit More Sweets and Specialties has cookies, scones, and brownies if you’re Kingstowne Farmers Marketlooking for a sweet treat. Bread and Water offers wonderful baked goods, their sourdough bread is one that I take home frequently. The Smith Family Farm always has fresh eggs and you can place an order for meat right at the market.

 

Farmers markets are a great way to support local businesses and enjoy the community at the same time. It’s nice to wander around for a bit and run into your neighbors for a quick chat or learn growing tips from the vendors. Farmers markets also allow you to know where your food is coming from, support the humane treatment of animals, and protect the environment.

Hello Amanda,  I love berries and from a local market is a plus.  Now you have me thinking a blueberry pie but to busy today, maybe tomorrow night.

Good Monday morning Realtor Amanda S. Davidson -

We really enjoy going to local farmers markets. Not only are you getting awesome produce and many times cool crafts but you're paying it forward in your own community as well.

Ah Ha! Paragraph 2 is the reason why Farmer's Markets are so attractive to me. Before you stated the reasons so eloquently, I always wondered why people like me are more relaxed when shopping for fruits and vegetables at a Farmers Market versus an ordinary grocery store. Now I know why. I can't remember the last time I was able to browse through the produce section of a grocery store without the employees getting in my way. They are never really helpful and I find I have to avoid wherever they are working because they are so focused on work, they don't even see the people who want to pick up something from where they are working - and they don't move either!

Farmers Markets definitely have friendly people and their produce speaks for itself - it doesn't need to be rotated because there's limited quantities and everyone can find quality without having to hunt for it!

Lovely and very thought provoking post Amanda!

Cheers to good health and more relaxed shopping sprees at Farmers Markets!

I'm glad to hear that so many of you enjoy the local markets too. I agree with Patricia Feager, MBA, GRI, Cert Negotiations Expert, Military Relo Prof it's such a more relaxed setting and more enjoyable shopping experience. I'm always sad when the season ends and we have to wait for them to return in the Spring.

Debbie, I have really enjoyed it too. I'll be sad the end of October when they pack up for the season. 

Leanne, I wish it was open more!

Rebecca, I love that they move it inside once the cool months arrive. Great idea!
