Lorton Farmers Market

Recommended Posts

Be sure to check out the new Lorton market on Sundays from 9 to 1, through October 25. It's a beautiful setting, behind the shops on Lorton Station Blvd in the VRE parking lot. The Washington Post "All We Can Eat" blog gave props for "most photogenic" market! Here's the link:

The quality is top notch and there is a great mix of vendors; listed below are just their primary offerings (many of the vendors are quite diverse, and products change with seasonality):

Kuhn Orchards: fruit

Ingleside Nurseries: outdoor plants

Patty Bakes: sweet baked goods

Garner's Produce: vegetables

Cibola Farms: buffalo and pork products

Pleasant Fields Farm: vegetables

Sharkawi Farms: herbal tisanes and dried herbs

Mt. Olympus Berry Farm: vegetables and berries

Crackpot Gourmet: preserves and savory cooking sauces

Toigo Orchards: fruits, vegetables, jarred items

Laurel Grove Farm: vegetables

Swiss Bakery: breads, baked goods

Middleburg Creamery: ice cream

Does this sound like a sales pitch? I guess it is. I've been privileged to be the volunteer market master for this brand new market. It has been a wonderful experience working with these dedicated folks who work so hard and take such pride in what they bring to market. So, any chance I get, I'd like to get the word out...please stop by, say hello, and support these local vendors (they're all from within a 125 mile radius of Fairfax County).
