Whoa! It’s Hot!!! Options for Chill

Summer got here fast and with a vengeance. When the ‘Real Feels’ get up to triple digits, its time to look for cool and refreshing options. The two coldest most refreshing, ready to eat items in the market have to be sorbet’s by Ana’s Twist and Gelato by Firenzes Gelato (Bionatfoods LLC). Between the two there are all sorts of frozen tropical flavors and even dairy free options. Find both Ana’s Twist and Firenzes in the fire lane next to the playground.

Try each of Ana’s Sorbets. Flavors include Crazy Green; Blackberry; Passion Fruit; Strawberry – Banana; Watermelon & Lime; or Mojito. She also sell a range of Icy cold juices.

Firenzes has classics like Chocolate; Vanilla; or Strawberry. Then they go off the rails. Have you ever heard of Lucuma? It is a Peruvian fruit that tastes like caramel or butterscotch, yes please. I’ve got Guava in my freezer ready for a taste and I can’t wait to try the coconut.

More Parking!!!

Did you know that there is a parking lot behind the Library? If you want easier parking and are able bodied, there is usually some parking available. From Washington Blvd. turn onto 18th Street, heading behind the library. Then bear right into the parking lot.


Back for our 11th Summer season, Westover Farmers Market is growing! Over the past several months, you may have noticed more vendors on the playground entrance of the market and we are thrilled for the extra space now that the storm water project is winding down. Once Summer market begins you’ll meet our newest vendors in the “new wing” of the market.

Many thanks to our produce vendors—Spring Valley, Twin Springs, Black Rock, Starstead, Linda Vista, and Baraja’s produce—who always have something to leave with the AFAC volunteer gleaners. None of these donations would be possible if not for the constant support of YOU, our customers, who come out every week. With every purchase, you are making a difference in your community.

Earlier this year our parent organization, Field to Table, became proud supporters of Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) with a $10,000 donation to this important community institution. In addition to this support, in 2022 the farm and orchard producers from Westover Farmers Market, Cherrydale Farmers Market, Lubber Run Farmers Market donated a whopping 19,000 pounds of freshly harvested fruits and vegetables that were distributed to Arlington residents experiencing food insecurity.

Thank you!

Farmers Market Friday: Leek and Potato Ravioli

A Westover Farmers Market seasonal recipe from International Palate:

There are some cooking ventures that are scarier than others. For some people, making pasta is something they would never try and leave the job to the professionals. Others may want to take on the challenge and try to make it themselves. But by the end of this recipe, you will see that making raviolis is not as hard as it may see. With the right ingredients, you can go far! Continue Reading


Farmers Market Friday: Leek Risotto

A new seasonal farmers market recipe from International Palate:

We all know that strange feeling when you realize that something you thought occurred a few weeks ago actually occurred a few months ago! The feeling presents itself more so as a shock…a shock of how quickly time goes by. Well, it’s 2016 and I’ve been waiting to share this recipe since May 2015…8 months ago. This recipe has been sitting on the back burner for quite some time now, only because it still feels like I made this recipe a week or so ago. But now, it’s finally time to share this recipe…before I forget about it again for another 12 months. Continue Reading.


Market open this Sunday 1/31

The Westover Farmers Market will be open this Sunday during usual winter hours, 9 – 1.  Vendors will be back with their seasonal fruits and vegetables and with wonderful baked goods and other locally prepared foods.  Come to the market to see where all of last Sunday’s snow has been placed!  A monumental effort by local market volunteers to get the market reopened.
