Sunny Day at the Market | News Release | Old Town North Farmers and Artisans Market

Hi Folks,

“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” – Julia Child
Join us today at the Old Town North Farmers and Artisans Market, Alexandria’s favorite dog-friendly market, located at  Montgomery Park in the Canal District, at the corner of North Royal and Montgomery Streets, next to the Tennis Courts.
Today’s market hours are 3:00 – 6:00 pm
Bundle up and pick up a warm hearty dinner from Ana of Sweet Twist who brings us her potato soup and fresh baked empanadas along with artisanal chocolates

This week Sara of Dream of Goodies brings us apple and lemon tarts, carrot and cardamom mini cakes, lemon curd cake jars, and assorted flavors of cake bites, as well as our grain-free Paleo pups dog treats. All of Sara’s Goodies are Paleo friendly, gluten free, low glycemic, and non GMO.

Julia of TigerSoap will be with us today, intriguing the senses with her handcrafted soaps, lotions, and balms.
