Buying fresh local tomatoes, lettice, green onions, and local fruits is always at the top of the list for my Saturday Morning venture to the Alexandria Farmers Market. There has been a public market on the square in front of city hall on King Street in Alexandria, Virginia for 200 years. I love seeing the vendors and the crowd, I like supporting local and semi-local farmers (some of them drive 100 miles to get here.)
There are also a couple of bakeries that sell at the market every weekend. Mirabel's has the most amazing bread, fresh, local, sometimes still warm from the oven. And there are a couple of pastry vendors, I have a favorite. My weekly indulgence in tasty pastry. If you are here on a Saturday morning, I will bring back extras.
