New Cherrydale Farmers Market Joins 8 Other Arlington Farmers Markets

I visited the grand opening of the new Cherrydale Farmers Market. Some 20 vendors were offering fruits and veggies and everything from breakfast sandwiches to barbecue.

One of my favorite finds was the Borek Turkish Pastry and spicy Hummus from Chia Catering of Stone Ridge. And there were Cannoli Kits at Caputo Brothers Creamery of Spring Grove, PA, and smoked local Virginia Trout from Cold Country Salmon of Zion Crossroads, VA.

Cherrydale Farmers Market, which replaces the Marymount University Farmers Market, is located at Dorothy Hamm Middle School (4100 Vacation Lane) on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon. It will be open through Nov. 20, the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
