Kingstowne Farmers Market Alexandria, Va 22315
The 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 looking 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.
