Virginia’s Farmers’ Markets are Open and Ready for Business this July 4th Weekend
If you’re still a little afraid to venture out to grocery stores during this pandemic and you love to support your local farmers and vendors, then you’re in luck! You can still visit and purchase from many of Virginia’s farmers’ markets, while getting some fresh air and a short escape from home.Here’s a list of a few markets throughout Virginia that are eager for your support.
Open year-round every Saturday, Leesburg Market is open and encouraging customers to pre-order directly from its vendors. If you choose not to pre-order, you still have the option of ordering at the market, but you will not be able to handle any of the products available.

Also in northern Virginia is the Old Town Farmers’ Market of Alexandria. Due to recent rulings from the City of Alexandria, the market is only allowing pre-orders, but you can still visit the historic Market Square for pickup.
