Smart Market, the Wednesday farmers market that had been operating at Sunrise Valley and Reston Parkway the last several years, will change locations this season.
Smart Market operator Jean Janssen says the afternoon market will open at Reston Station’s Plaza on May 6.
Reston Station, located adjacent to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station, is soon to be a foodie destination. The Stock Market @ Reston Station, with about a dozen food stalls and other retailers, is slated to open soon, and developer Comstock is hoping the area turns into a shopping, food truck and dining destination.
“We are very excited to have a farmers market,” says Comstock spokeswoman Maggie Parker. “We think it is a great opportunity for Metro commuters, and I know I will be stocking my office fridge with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.”
Janssen said on the market’s Facebook page that the Reston Corner office complex’s recent sale made it difficult to secure market space for this season.
Janssen also said she is working with Comstock on ways to make parking available on the outdoor parking deck, adjacent to where the market will be located.
Meanwhile, the Saturday Reston Farmers Market and craft market will open for the season at Lake Anne Plaza on May 2.
