You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients.” – Julia Child

Join us today for The Taste of Old Town North, the annual celebration of the charms of our neighborhood. This event is family friendly, dog friendly, and promises to be great fun! Celebrations include:

Shopping at the Farmer’s Market, where Ana’s Twist will be sampling vegan lentil soup with green plantain and cabbage, fresh pineapple ginger juice, oven baked empanadas, chilli sauce made with Ecuadorian tomato tree and local products. Sara of Dream of Goodies brings us pecan tartlets made with organic pecans and homemade date paste, petite cardamom pistachio spice cakes, pumpkin spice cupcakes made with organic pumpkin, sweet potato gnocchi, 11″ pre-baked pizza crust, and more. Most goodies are dairy, soy, and gluten free. Our newest vendor Kremena of Savory n Sweet brings us home baked goodies made with natural ingredients and love. Farmer Leonel continues to share the bounty of Virginia’s Northern Neck, sweet corn, butternut squash, melons, peaches and apples!

Compost Alex returns to the Market this Week and next with information on the new Composting Center at Four Mile Run and everything you need to know to begin composting at home.

The Old Town North Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market is sponsored by The Old Town North Community Partnership with support from the City of Alexandria, MRE Properties, River’s Edge Yoga, Yogis For Positive Change and the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership.

See you at the market! Rain or Shine, Year Round!

We strive to use only the best ingredients that are sustainably sourced, habitat friendly, and organic whenever possible. Our eggs and butter are locally sourced. The hens are feed organic non-GMO feed and are humanely raised. Our butter is organic and comes from pasture raised, grass-fed cows that aren't treated with rBST. We have a wide variety of treats that range from nut free to vegan. You won’t believe gluten free and healthy could taste this good. We are woman-owned, eco-conscience, and health oriented.
