Relax and Smell the Donuts!!!

Market Policy

  • Face coverings are recommended for all persons in the market.
  • One Way Flow encouraged.
  • Please don’t come to the market if you are unwell or at high-risk.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you return home.
  • If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to ask one of the market managers.
  • Be kind, be patient, and be considerate of the most cautious among us (Westover Beer Garden)

One Way Flow – Update

One-Way Flow is still encouraged, but we are relaxing enforcement. The increacing percentage of new Covid cases from the Delta Variant is a concern, but the total number of new cases in Arlington is very low. Since the end of May the 7-Day Average has remained below 2 cases per day. Lastly, the market narrows where the school construction eats the sidewalk. The market flow is easier if customers walk the same direction through the narrow space. We think the current situation warrents encouragement not mandate.

Pick Up Procedure

  • In order to preserve physical distancing, entrance is from Washington Blvd and foot traffic flows one way up the street.
  • Check to see if there is a line to enter and go to the end of the line. There will be a “gatekeeper” monitoring the number of people entering and will tell you when it’s OK to enter.
  • Look for the bright yellow distancing tape if there are lines and in front of vendor booths.
  • Let the gatekeeper know which vendors you are picking up from, if there are no lines in front of them, you might be allowed to enter the market ahead of others waiting fin line for other vendors.
  • There are limited grab and go items from most vendors, which you are welcome to purchase, but pre-ordering is the best way to keep everyone moving safely through the market in a timely manner. See the end of this post for some of the grab-and-go offerings and plan your list in advance.

Market Community Safety

What We’re Doing

  • Vendors are set up further apart to allow more space in between
  • Reflowing foot traffic in one direction to minimize passing (enter at Wash. Blvd, exit at 18th Street)
  • Staying current on ordnance and guidance from state and local government and health departments

What You Should Do

  • Only one adult family member should enter the market to pick up purchases.
  • Kindly leave kids at home. We love children, but they add to crowding at market and pose a risk to our senior shoppers.
  • Please don’t come to market if you are unwell or at high-risk. We recommend following current CDC guidelines for facial coverings while out of the home.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you return home.
  • Once you’ve picked up your orders, we ask you to exit at the opposite end on 18th Street so that other customers can enter.
  • If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to ask one of the market managers.

Grab and Go at the Market

While pre-ordering is the preferred method of acquiring ALL of your market shopping, some vendors bring pre-packaged produce, value-added and prepared food items for sale. You are welcome to pick up whatever you need, but please make a list, know what you want, and refrain from browsing while at the market. Here are some of the items that were available at the last market. Check with your favorite vendors for this weeks offerings.

Westover Farmers Market managers and volunteers are working hard to ensure that customers and vendors are safe in the market and everyone has access to locally grown, healthy and delicious food.

Coronavirus Updates

To all our WFM family of customers, vendors and volunteers. Watch this space for links and information for online ordering for Sunday pick up at Westover farmers markets. The onsite logistics are evolving to make sure everyone shops and works in a safe environment, but many of our producers and vendors have already retooled for this new reality and we will do whatever we are allowed to do to support them.

Here is the official announcement from the Virginia Dept. of Agricultural and Consumer Services: “VDACS Commissioner Dr. Jewel Bronaugh clarified that farmers markets may only accept pre-ordering or online ordering — items have to be packaged and ready for pickup at the market. This order goes into effect at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 and will remain in place until 11:59 PM on Thursday, April 23, 2020.”

WFM Raffle – Spooky Edition

The final Westover Farmers Market raffle of the season will take place this Sunday, October 30.  As usual, purchase at least $5 in goods at any booth and receive a raffle ticket. Write your name and number on the ticket and deposit it in the bin at the WFM tent. Drawings will be held every 30 minutes.

But wait! Kids who come dressed in Halloween attire will get extra tickets and there will be a few (scarily good?) prizes for best costumes. A ghoulish time for all – see you at the market.

Cherries and berries

We’re in the early summer season when soft fruits appear in the market. The bountiful strawberry crop of the past several weeks is ending. But blackberries, raspberries, cherries and other berries are taking their place in the farmers’ stands. And there is the possibility of a few early peaches! Recommend you visit the Westover Farmers Market early Sunday to have the best selection of seasonal fruits.
