Stock Up on Local, Seasonal Food at the City of Falls Church Farmers Market

No matter the time of year, the City of Falls Church Farmers Market draws at least 40 local vendors in the form of farmers and food artisans to the City Hall parking lot every Saturday morning. In the warmer months, however, that number usually jumps up to more than 50. So now is the perfect time to check out the local farmers' market if you haven't had a chance in years past.

The market even started to open up an extra hour early (at 8 a.m.) in April to give shoppers more time to peruse the larger bounty of fresh fruits and veggies, meats, and artisan-crafted foods. So BYO reusable bags and get to City Hall early to pick up some fresh java from Beanetics Coffee Roasters, stock up on veggies and seasonal berries from Lois's Produce, or grab a bottle of local vino from North Gate Vineyard in Purcellville.
