Lake Anne Farmer's Market

Every four or five weeks, Darren, Sophie and I will have the energy to drag ourselves out of bed early on a Saturday morning and join the crowds at the Lake Anne Market in Reston, VA. This combination farmer's and crafter's market is arguably one of the largest weekly outdoor markets in the Washington area. It draws both large crowds and a good variety of vendors selling anything from local produce to Peruvian goods.

The produce was abundant and fresh this morning.

I'm trying heirloom tomatoes for the first time today, to see what all the hype is about.

Sophie has a cold this morning and looks a bit disheveled and grumpy.

Lake Anne has a variety of stores, residential buildings, restaurants and fountains.

  1. I'm ready for tomato season. I'm tired of my supermarket claiming mushy yellow garbage as "vine ripened"
