People who come to Alexandria on Saturday mornings find themselves in a busy plaza where local farmers and artists have been selling their products since 1753. Old Town Alexandria’s Market Square is thought to be one of the nation’s oldest continually operating farmer’s markets, serving as a primary way Alexandria residents have typically obtained their meat, dairy, fish, fruits and vegetables.
George Washington sent his produce from Mount Vernon to be sold at the Farmer’s Market. Today, the market offers Alexandrians a way to reconnect to the past, while participating in an ongoing local and national tradition.
