Sign of Summer: Reston Farmers Market to Open This Month

The Reston Farmers Market opens for its 20th season at Lake Anne Plaza’s parking lot on April 21.

The market will be open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon from opening day through December. It will be closed on September 22 for a multi-cultural festival.

Virginia Living magazine’s Annual Best of Virginia Awards ranked the market as the second-best farmers market in the state.

SNAP beneficiaries receive a $20 match at the market. No dogs are allowed at the market.

Meanwhile, the farmers market by Community Foodworks, located at St. John Neumann Catholic Church (11900 Lawyers Road), is scheduled to open on April 18.

This year, the market will not include a CSA-option. Fossil Rock Farm, last year’s CSA vendor, plans to remain a vendor.

Community Foodworks is a D.C.-based non-profit that aims to increase access to healthy food while creating opportunities for local farmers.

Reston Farm Market, located at 10800 Baron Cameron Avenue,  opened for the spring and summer season on March 1. It will run through Sept. 12 and offers spring greens, spinach, kale, lettuce, tomatoes and more.

It is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
