Old Town Alexandria has another accolade under its belt: boasting one of Southern Living Magazine’s best farmers markets in the South.
The market in Old Town is acclaimed as one of the oldest ongoing markets in the country.
According to the magazine:
When it comes to longstanding tradition, the Old Town Farmers’ Market in Alexandria, Virginia, might take the cake. This Saturday market has been going on since 1753 and showcases local produce, meats, flowers, cheese, baked goods, plants, soaps, and more. It’s America’s oldest farmers’ market held continuously at the same site, and takes places year-round, rain or shine, with more than 70 vendors during the peak season.
The Old Town Farmers’ Market sits on the list next to the Charleston Farmers Market — another list grouping Alexandria with another port that draws in tourism with a very colonial-America downtown.
Alexandria wasn’t the only farmers market in the region to make the list, though. FRESHFARM Dupont Circle Sunday Market also earned a spot on the list.
We are thrilled to share that the Old Town Farmers' Market was included in @Southern_Living round-up, 12 Farmers Markets In The South You Should Visit This Season. Learn more and visit the Farmers' Market this Saturday: https://t.co/nDGMopZAVQ
