Volunteer With Us: Prepping for the 4 Mile Run Farmers Market

Last night, Management from the new 4 Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market met with a group of potential vendors at the site (adjacent to 4109 Mt Vernon Avenue). Thanks to the first clean up (see action shot on the right) on May 29, things were looking pretty good... and some of them even signed up on the spot!

Market Status
The Market has received several applications to date with more coming in. The Market will be open starting Sunday, June 20th from 8am to 1pm. It will be open every Sunday through October, rain or shine. Right now it looks like there will be between 6-8 vendors on day 1, but that number could quickly grow. We'll have a full write-up on Market opening in the next few days.

Help Tidy Up a Bit More on Saturday
This Saturday, June 12, from 9-11, we will continue to weed and generally improve the site.  Meet at 4109 Mt Vernon Ave (map).  Please come out and bring gloves and any weeding tools you might have. This will be our last big chance to get the Market site looking great for its first day! Please come out and show your support. Our team of Market managers have been working non-stop to make this Market a reality and help realize the vision of the 4MR Park expansion. Getting a bunch of volunteers out on Saturday will make the site look great and will help get it done quickly!

This is really exciting!! My husband and I decided to buy a home in Arlandria because we believe that it is a community that is filled with promise. We are looking forward to the Farmer's Market and future development in Arlandria.
