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.
On account of the impending snow and the likelihood of difficult travel conditions, the Westover Farmers Market will not take place on January 24. Impromptu snow angel competition on the Reed School plaza instead. Stay safe, and see you on January 31.

Whitmore Farm http://www.whitmorefarm.com/ joins the Westover Farmers Market beginning this Sunday. Whitmore Farm raises pastured pork, eggs, and seasonal grass-fed lamb. The farm also raises a small amount of seasonal vegetables, cut flowers and starter plants. The farm is located in Frederick County, Maryland, outside the town of Emmitsburg off of U.S. Highway 15. The pigs and poultry are heirloom breeds humanely raised that yield pork, sausage, and eggs different from those found in most stores. Whitmore Farm will be located in stall spot # 31 at the north end of the market. Please give them a warm welcome!
In case your dessert habit is feeling a bit underfed these days, perhaps you might ponder Livin’ the Pie Life. Yes, that’s right: hand-made pies, local in Arlington, now at WFM. You know you want some. Look for them up on the plaza in front of the library.
And don’t you want to smell nice when you’re at the market kibitzing with neighbors? Felicity’s hand-crafted soaps has just the thing for you, in all manner of skin-friendly, nice-smelling options. Also look for them up on the plaza.
See you at the market!
