It's Almost Here: 2012 Opening Day is Sunday May 6!


Get your reusable bags ready to fill with farm-fresh goodies and artisan made crafts.

Sunday, May 6th will be the Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market  opening day! This should be a great season at 4MRMarket!

Opening day raffle for all customers! Come out to 4MRMarket and be entered in a drawing to win 2 tickets and a parking pass to see the Nats play the Marling on May 12th. (Thanks to the generous donation from Hume Springs Citizens Association Vice President Jacob Cuomo).

This season 4MRMarket will be held on a brand new plaza next to the brand new stage at the re-purposed Four Mile Run Conservatory building.

From the re-purposed paint store, looking North, the first phase of construction brings a brand new, permeable and semi-permeable plaza. Soon, the plaza will be lined with trees, covered in eye-catching colors, and host to the weekly 4MRMarket and various concerts, performances, and community events of all types.

A future phase of construction will add more gardens, trees, and connecting paths to the new space.  Community volunteer support will help some of this happen faster.  A continuing work in progress, future volunteer gardening days are likely on the horizon, so please be ready to lend a hand as things come together.
