Arlington Fresh Air Markets
Locally grown food and other treasures are always in season. Find produce, freshly-baked bread, homemade salsa, pastries, cheese, flowers and all sorts of other wonderful products at one of Arlington's many farmers and artist markets. Whether you’re shopping for a week’s worth of groceries, a few last-minute ingredients or a one-of-a-kind gift, you can always find what need - and maybe even a few things you just have to have.
Arlington’s farmers and arts markets offer possibly one of the best ways to truly shop local. Farmers markets provide food that is fresh, locally produced, often organic and always tasty. Arts markets feature one-of-kind items from local designers. Weekend markets are wonderful gathering places for the entire family, where Arlingtonians can mix and mingle with their neighbors. For those who work in Arlington, week-day markets provide convenient ways to get a little shopping done before the weekend, or enjoy lunch al fresco.
