The City of Alexandria invites the public to the 2009 opening of the West End Farmers’ Market at 9 a.m. on Sunday, May 3, at Ben Brenman Park, 4800 Brenman Park Drive. This year, the West End Farmers’ Market is open to the public on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., from May 3 through November 22.

This outdoor market is one of a kind in the City’s west end. Multiple vendors lay out colorful displays of fresh, locally grown, in-season vegetables as well as sweet juicy berries, apples, pears, and seasonal peaches. A visitor can indulge in gourmet coffee, fresh-squeezed orange juice, fresh-baked pastries, and sample one of Tommy T’s delicious gourmet cheeses and yogurts, while picking up a variety of fresh breads for the week. The first Sunday of each month features local artists and crafters. The Market is located at the end of Somervelle Street. For additional information, call 703.838.4343.
