April 29 – Alexandria's Old Town Farmer's Market

Old Dominion Boat Club

“The journey not the arrival matters.” ―T. S. Eliot
One of our favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is go to a local farmers market. Some people come strictly for the fresh fruits and vegetables...we enjoy taking in the whole scene, buying fresh baked goods, wandering the stalls sampling locally made cheeses and wines, talking to local people and watching the world come alive.

The Old Town Farmers' Market in Alexandria is the oldest farmers' market in the country held continuously at the same site. Local farmers and artists have been selling their products in Market Square Plaza since 1753, even George Washington sent his produce from Mount Vernon to be sold at this Farmer's Market.
