Arlington County Approves WFM

After many months of working with County staff and after recent discussions with many Westover merchants and area civic associations, the Westover Farmers Market received its use permit from the Arlington County Board on Saturday. (Check out their press release.)  This is an important vote of political support, and we greatly appreciate the support from all parties involved. In describing the unanimous sentiment of the County Board, chair Mary Hynes said: “Residents of the four civic associations near Reed-Westover told us how much they value the local merchants and how interested they are in hosting a new farmer’s market. Our action today will result in an even more lively place that benefits local businesses and offers North Arlington easy access to fresh, healthy local food.”

In coming days we’ll announce more vendors, more information about the market, and a call for volunteers. Check back soon!
