Market to Table Recipe: Watermelon and Mint Salad
This summer salad is the perfect way to use up a giant watermelon! Pick up your melon from Lopez Farm, Dunham Farms, or any of our other great vendors, and don’t forget Kalamata olives from Dmitri Olive Farm and mint from Bigg Riggs! Click here for the full recipe.
Take our Annual Customer Survey!
We want to hear from you! Click here to take our annual customer survey to give us feedback on vendors, hours, market activities and other important market info! It takes about three minutes and will work on both a smartphone and computer. If you have additional feedback, please email Mae Carroll, Market Manager, at OldTownFarmersMarket@AlexandriaVA.gov.
Volunteers Needed at Market!
We need volunteers to help with collecting donations for Hunger Action Month in September. If you’re interested, please contact Sara Kohn Rhoades at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Old Town Farmers’ Market accepts SNAP/EBT and offers customers up to $20 in matching funds. See Double Dollar Brochure – English or Double Dollar Brochure – Spanish for more information. This summer, SNAP customers can participate in a lottery for the chance to win even more incentives! Be sure to make @OldTownMktAlex your market to shop on Saturday mornings!
