Winter at the Old Town Farmers’ Market – we’re open year-round! 
We’re excited to be a year-round market and we welcome customers to Market Square every Saturday—rain, shine, or snow!  Come shop with us this winter and you’ll find crisp apples, fresh greens, meat, cheese, milk, a huge variety of baked goods, and specialty artisan products.

Shop Small

What types of vendors do YOU want at the market?
With the fast approaching New Year, we have the opportunity to bring on new vendors to meet the wants and needs of you, our supportive shoppers!  Have you always wanted a specialty whole nut vendor?  Do you crave organic fruits and vegetables?  Help us vendor-hunt by letting us know what you’d like to see at market!  You can email the market manager, Mae Carroll, at mae.carroll@alexandriava.gov, with your suggestions!

Kale Frittata
Market to Table Recipe – Kale Frittata
Mix up a hearty Sunday brunch this weekend with this healthy kale frittata recipe.  Pick up fresh kale from Spring Valley, Bigg Riggs, or Diaz Berries. And while you’re at it, grab a dozen GMO-free and pasture-raised eggs from Lamb’s Quarter or Coulter Farms.

Market Customers – send us your favorite seasonal recipe!
Send us your favorite winter recipe and a photo and we’ll publish it in this newsletter!  We’re looking for good-for-you grub that doesn’t weigh you down—recipes loaded with veggies and meat and/or dairy products you can buy at the market.  Spread the word and your delicious dishes to our community!  Send a photo and recipe (list ingredients and preparation steps) to sara.rhoades@alexandriava.gov.  Bon Apetite!

Compost Buggy
Don’t Forget to Bring Your Compost to Market! 
The Old Town Farmers’ Market in Alexandria, VA is happening this Saturday and so is the Resource Recovery Station—we’re there every Saturday to collect your food scraps.  Drop by and compost: even if it’s a drive by, the compost station will be there for you. #‎Happy #‎Composting
