Westover Farmers Market Summer Opening
Field to Table, Inc. is pleased to announce the start of the second year of operations with the opening of the summer market on Sunday, May 5th. The market hours of operation will change to 8:00 – 12:00 for the summer and fall seasons, an hour earlier than the winter market. The Westover Farmers Market is located at the corner of Washington Blvd. and N. McKinley Rd. in Arlington, Virginia and operates year round.
Field to Table, Inc. is an Arlington-based, non-profit organization dedicated to building communities throughout Northern Virginia through the encouragement of healthy eating. The organization is part of the nationwide “locavore” movement, which encourages people to reestablish their relationship with the land and purchase from local farmers and food preparers. The emphasis is on nutrition, taste, quality and freshness in what we buy, not on the misguided values of mass production, long shelf life, and long-distance transportation that drive so much of what is sold as food in the United States. We strive to bring residents a convenient, varied blend of local producers of fruits and vegetables, baked goods, dairy products, flowers, and specialty foods that focus on improving the nutritional experience and overall health of the community.
