Endless Summer

Dear Friends and Patrons of Westover Farmers Market,

Today was our penultimate summer market; it hardly seems possible that time could pass so quickly. We eagerly hope to bring you a winter market to pick up where the summer market is leaving off. Pending approval from the Arlington County Board (which will decide the matter on November 27th), the winter market would begin December 2nd. If approved, the market would take place Sundays 9:00-1:00 and run from December-April (with a break from December 16th-January 13th for the holidays).

If you have a moment, please consider writing the Arlington Country Board prior to November 27th. Any discussion of WFM’s importance to you/your family or its impact on the surrounding neighborhoods would be genuinely appreciated. Comments can either be emailed to countyboard@arlingtonva.us or sent by regular mail to County Board, Suite 300, 2100 Clarendon Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201.

Thank you for your continued patronage and support – we (and our vendors) hope to continue seeing you throughout the winter season!

Sincerely, WFM

  1. we have written the Board. We were actually surprised though because several vendors seem to think approval has already been given.

    • County Board action on our proposed winter market was shifted from Nov. 17 to Nov. 27 simply because one or more speakers slips were submitted at the beginning of the Saturday Board meeting. People submit a slip if they want to comment on a particular item on the Board’s Consent Agenda for the meeting. That automatically pulls the item off the Consent Agenda and requires it to be heard by the Board at its next session, which is the 27th. The speakers slip or slips may have been submitted by market supporters. We may never know. We are unaware of any opposition to the winter market. But at this point it is prudent to encourage market supporters to let their views be heard so that the winter market can begin as planned on December 2. Thanks for your support!
