Old Town Farmers' Market has been part of Alexandria for so long that George Washington himself used to send produce from Mount Vernon to be sold here. In fact, the Old Town Farmers' Market has taken place at Market Square for more than 260 years — that makes it the longest-running farmers' market in the nation that's been held at the same spot since its inception.
Come and be a part of this local legacy—and get the goods to stock your pantry—every Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon, all year long. During the warmer months, the Old Town Farmers' Market can attract up to 70 vendors. Many come bearing fresh fruits and veggies, meats and cheeses, and fresh baked goods and pasta. However, some also offer items like artisan soaps, paintings and fabric art, and cut flowers or potted plants.
