Vote WFM – Best of Arlington

Looking to get some early voting practice before November?  Arlington Magazine is conducting their annual Best of Arlington Survey.  Please take a minute to vote WFM as best farmers market.  We can’t promise full employment, tax cuts, or that we’ll save medicare and social security.  But we are committed to bringing the best variety of fresh food products to N. Arlington every Sunday morning.

Raffle to Celebrate National Farmer's Week

To celebrate National Farmers Week, the Westover Farmers Market will host three produce raffles for our customers. Our fabulous vendors are donating items that we’re grouping into three “baskets” for drawings at 9:30, 10:30, and 11:30; tell all your friends by joining the raffle on facebook.

National Farmer’s Week recognizes the important role that farmers markets play in developing local and regional food systems that support the sustainability of family farms, revitalize communities, and provide opportunities for farmers and consumers to interact.  What better way to mark the occasion than by rewarding our loyal patrons through a raffle of some delectable goodies.

As you do your market shopping, every time you spend over $5 at a vendor, you will receive a pair of raffle tickets. For a chance to win, put your name and phone number on the back on one copy and drop it off at the WFM tent. Stick around for the next drawing (at the WFM tent) and see if you are a winner! We’ll collect tickets individually for each raffle time. Please be sure you’ll be there or be able to answer our phone call and pick up your winnings within a half hour.  See you Sunday!

 

Vendor Vendor

If you’ve been the market lately you’ll notice a few changes as we’ve slowly expanded the offerings.  The latest vendors to join are Night Sky Farm and Number One Sons.  At Night Sky, you’ll find an excellent assortment of cheeses: fresh chevre in natural, basil with sunflower, Ras El Hanout (curry & cumin), herbes de Provence, cracked pepper and wasabi, ginger, lemon! You’ll also find queso blanco, flora danica and feta of all sorts!  Number One Sons love to pickle – if it ferments, you’ll probably see it amidst the gherkins, kimchi, salsas and more.

Come check out these vendors and others at the market.  And stay tuned for special news about the market on August 12 – you won’t want to miss it.
