During the winter it is still equally if not MORE important to make sure you're eating your fresh veggies every day. We need those extra vitamins in those green leafy veggies to help us keep those yucky flu germs at bay. They also allow you to have a more healthy and balanced gluten free meal each day keeping those pounds from collecting at our waist lines. However, grocery stock during the winter can definitely be disappointing. And the plethora of farmers' markets available during the warmer months are not available. Falls Church however, provides some great alternatives to that wilting grocery stock.
The Falls Church City Farmer's Market is available year round. Metro accessible from the East Falls Church station and right off of 66, the market is easy to get to. It also has plenty of parking available nearby. Set up in the City Hall parking lot, it is open from 9 am to noon during Jan - March. Once the warmer weather returns in April, it starts even earlier opening at 8 am.
Not a fan of braving the cold weather to get fresh veggies on a Sat morning? Try out The Local Market in Falls Church instead. Located at 246 W. Broad Street it is open daily from 9 am to 8 pm. They have everything you'd find at a farmer's market and even more. You can get fresh farm milk, cheeses, homemade sausages and even homemade soap products!
So don't use that cold weather as an excuse to settle on less than worthy veggies. Take that drive over to Falls Church and treat yourself to some nice, crisp greenery instead!
