79. Shop at a farmers market.

Completed 30 July 2010



Stopped at the one in Centreville on my way home from work. I've been living here since 2007 and yet somehow I'd never noticed the existence of a farmers market. I mean, it's not on a road I ever drive down, but there is a sign on Route 29, and it is held every single Friday...



Anyway. I had fun. It was small, but I had to restrain myself from buying up the whole lot. Instead I picked up some peaches, a loaf of sourdough bread, and a small blueberry pie (gluten free, of all things). I haven't tried the pie yet (I'm going to share it with my husband) but the rest was absolutely delicious. I'll have to go back with my husband sometime.

79. Shop at a farmer's market

I managed to find a good listing of local farmers markets. I've predictably unfortunately lost the link, but I did manage to save the addresses and hours for a few nearby that are open when I'm not at work:

Reston Farmers Market
Saturdays 8:00am - Noon, May 8 - October 30
Lake Anne Village Center, Reston, VA

Burke Farmers Market
Saturdays 8:00am — Noon, May 1 - November 20
5671 Roberts Parkway, Burke, VA

Kingstowne Farmers Market
Fridays 4:00pm - 7:00pm, May 7 - October 29
Kingstowne Town Center, Alexandria, VA

Centreville Farmers Market
Fridays 3:30-6:30pm, through October 29
5875 Trinity Center, Centreville, VA

Now, of course, I need to actually visit one, but I think I might wait until the weather cools off a touch. Today's high is a solid 100 degrees Fahrenheit. No thanks.
