Del Ray Farmer’s Market is Open for 2009 Season
Ok, so the Del Ray Farmer’s Market has really been open since the first of April but it wasn’t until this past glorious, sunny Saturday that we could take it in. And what a Saturday it was – Del Ray was full of yard sales, including the MV BIG FLEA, the Caboose and St. Elmo’s were packed, City Council candidates were working the crowds and the Farmers Market was brimming with the best in locally produced products.
Located in the parking lot at the corner of Mt. Vernon and East Oxford, the Del Ray market has organic meats, fresh pastas, locally produced fruits and vegetables, home made cakes, cookies and breads, artisanal cheeses, honey, and yogurt, cultivated mushrooms and heirloom tomato plants.
The fruits and vegetables in particular are just out of the field (or off the tree) and if its not in season, its not for sale! Personally we can’t wait for the few brief weeks when fresh English peas make their appearance. The market is open from 8:00 a.m. to 12 noon -dogs welcome, but on the perimeter.
Really folks, is there any better place to be on a Saturday morning than Del Ray? Want to know more about living in this incredible neighborhood? Give me a call at 703.927.4554.
