Field to Table, Inc. is an Arlington-based, non-profit organization dedicated to building communities throughout Northern Virginia through the encouragement of healthy eating. The organization is part of the nationwide “locavore” movement, which encourages people to reestablish their relationship with the land and purchase from local farmers and food preparers. The emphasis is on nutrition, taste, quality and freshness in what we buy, not on the misguided values of mass production, long shelf life, and long-distance transportation that drive so much of what is sold as food in the United States. The Westover Farmers Market is this organization’s original market, but Field to Table now also manages the Fairlington Farmers Market in South Arlington and the Marymount Farmers Market on the main campus of Marymount University. A fourth Arlington market is scheduled to open in late May 2018.
We are interested in talking to other Northern Virginia communities considering a weekly market. We strive to bring residents a convenient, varied blend of local producers of fruits and vegetables, baked goods, dairy products, flowers, and specialty foods that focus on improving the nutritional experience and overall health of the community.
