Farmers market season is back!
And there is no better way to shake off the week than a quick ride, cruise or stroll to your local farmers market. This Saturday, April 15 two of Arlington’s newest farmers markets — Lubber Run and Cherrydale — will open for the summer season with a full array of locally grown farm fruits and vegetables, spring bedding plants, baked goods, empanadas, flowers, breakfast sandwiches and coffee.
The vendors travel less than 125 miles to bring their fresh produce and foods to the markets. Market customers enjoy the friendly vibe and flow of our outdoor markets. It’s a great time to spend with family, and friends.
Located conveniently off Langston Boulevard (US Route 29) at the Dorothy Hamm Middle School, 4100 Vacation Lane, Arlington, VA 22207. The market is celebrating its third year of providing fresh produce and locally made foods in North Arlington. Many neighbors walk and bike each Saturday morning to the market. Parking is available close by at the school.
Spring means an abundance of fresh greens, asparagus, beets, and carrots, plus herbs and potted plants. Apples are always plentiful and are available in many varieties. Before long, strawberries will be here! Spring is also a great time to take home a bunch of gorgeous flowers.
So grab a coffee and take home some fresh roasted beans for the week, along with delicious scones, madeleine cookies, fresh bread, flowers and homemade jams and nut butters. You can find prepared foods such as breakfast sandwiches, empanadas and dumplings. Cherrydale Farmers Market literally offers soup to nuts.
Some of the farmers also sell bedding plants for vegetables, greens and herbs, just at the right time to get them in the ground. Last year the market introduced music from local musicians and free yoga from Sun and Moon studio. This year’s market promises even more fun — and satisfied stomachs.
