4MRMarket Report: Lounge Edition

Now in its 7th week, the Four Mile Run Farmers & Artisans Market opened today with several new craft vendors, live music, a newly created kids play area and, for the whole family,  the newly opened Market Lounge.

Vendors at the market now include produce from Pleitez Farms and Shlagel Farms, Northern Lights Seafood, salads from Zelda's Nova Soul, teas from Pearl's Fine Teas and Alexandria Tea and Spice Exchange, fresh baked goods from Vera's Bakery, Bread and Chocolate, Marcela's Bakery and MT Pastries and original confections from Krishon Chocolates. Crafters from UncommonKnits and local artisans round out the market along with St Elmo's Coffee Pub. (Stiffler Farms Beef has the week off but will be back in the near future).

A newly created Market Lounge has been set up for folks to enjoy the beautiful weather at Four Mile Run Park while indulging in breakfast, brunch or lunch and good conversation and live music nearby.

And thanks to folks from the Alexandria Arts Commission, the marketplace at the park now hosts a kids play area freshly painted over the past two weekends.


The Four Mile Run Farmers and Artisans Market (Alexandria, Virginia 22305) brings fresh, nutritious food to people of all income levels, provide an opportunity for local artisans and producers of goods to bring their wares to market, strive to reflect the diversity of the community, and improve the quality of life for Arlandria residents and visitors.  It is part of an overall vision to expand and improve Four Mile Run park and the surrounding neighborhood.

The Market is open every Sunday from 8am until 1pm from April through October in Four Mile Run Park at 4109 Mt Vernon Avenue, Alexandria 22305
