4MR Winter Market Reminder: Grand Re-Snowpening!

The Four Mile Run Farmers & Artisans Market (4MRMarket) will be open every Sunday from 9am until 1pm from April 19th through November in Four Mile Run Park at 4109 Mt Vernon Avenue, Alexandria. (click here for directions)

It's safe to come back out and buy fresh, buy local!
The parking lot is all dug out, much of the snow on the 4MR Park plaza has melted, and we're an indoor market anyway, so come on back for our unexpected grand re-snowpening!

You definitely don't expect to see a storm like Jonas too often, so hopefully that will be our last weather induced closing of the year! This will be a great weekend to come out to 4MR Winter Market!

Bagel Uprising will be there so you can get your first good bagel in weeks! Homestead Farm will be back with winter produce!  Captain Xander will be back with sustainably caught Alaskan sockeye salmon! And on top of that, new crafter Red Fish Rue Fish will be there for the first time to bring you her unique and sometimes geeky jewelry pieces, custom buttons, prints, and microart!

You'll also find bread fresh from the oven (Second Rising), Amish cheeses, eggs, yogurt, and other goodies (Tom's Amish Cheese), hand blended teas (Whole Health), fresh baked Bulgarian treats (Savory N' Sweet), and several other great vendors there this Sunday!

It should be a great market, so come on back out... the weather's fine!


This is a general list of the vendors that will be at 4MR Winter Market throughout the season.  This list will grow soon! (Note that individual vendors may be off from time-to-time.)
