Old Town North Farmers’ Market

OLD TOWN NORTH CANAL DISTRICT · MONTGOMERY PARK PARKING LOT

901 North Royal Street
Hours: Thursday, 4:00-7:00pm

Did you know… Locally owned retailers, such as farmers markets return more than three times as much of their sales to the local economy compared to chain competitors.

Welcome to the Thursday Old Town Community Market,
Alexandria’s Favorite Dog – Friendly Market.

Winter Delights!

The market will be open Thursday from 4-7, as we work to determine the best hours for our Winter Market.

For our holiday shoppers…This week we welcome the return of Sanjay from Dire Necessities. Sanjay brings a wide selection of scarves and shawls from artisans in India and Tibet. We are also delighted to welcome Athena with a charming collection of handcrafted pillows.

We shall also have a selection of gift items from local artisans at the community table.

Sara of Dream of Goodies brings us sweet potato gnocchi, petite bundt cakes, cookies, and tarts in apple cinnamon, pecan, and bourbon pecan, along with cupcakes. All of Sara’s offerings are paleo friendly, gluten free, low glycemic and non GMO. The sweet potato gnocchi make a perfect quick, easy dinner on a cold evening.

Food enthusiast Kremena of Savory and Sweet brings us home baked treats made with all natural ingredients. I have become very fond of Kremena’s scones!

Ana is away visiting her family in Ecuador but returns to us in early January.

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!
