Vote for the City of Falls Church Farmers Market

Posted on July 6, 2015 at 10:53 AM by OCOM Specialist

The Falls Church Farmers Market has been a community gathering place in the City for more than 30 years. The Market, which is open every Saturday year-round, provides community members with fresh, locally sourced food, and monthly Chef Series demonstrations.

This summer, the American Farmland Trust (AFT) launched the 7th Annual Farmers Market Celebration to raise national awareness about the importance of local farmers markets. AFT is looking for the best Farmers Markets across the country and they are giving people the power to vote for their favorite! 

Help endorse the Falls Church Farmers Market. There are four categories in which you can cast your vote: focus on farmers, availability of nutritious food for all, uniqueness to the community, and environmental sustainability. You can also use the hashtag #OnMyFork to share your memories of our amazing market. What you choose to put on your fork matters because when you are shopping at the Falls Church Farmers Market, you are helping local families thrive.

Our Market strives to support area farmers, boost the local economy, and protect the environment with programs and vendors that highlight the uniqueness of The Little City. We think the Falls Church Farmers Market is a great asset to the community, so we encourage you to vote now!
