4MRMarket Report: Come Hurricane or High Water, There Will Be Bagels

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

Tomorrow will be a small market, but come out and get your bagel fix with Bagel Uprising! Not to mention Savory N' Sweet and Captain Xans.  We may have a few other vendors on hand, but we'll be open either way!

The Vendors!

Here is who you will find at 4MRMarket!

Food Vendors
  • Savory 'N Sweet (Alexandria) - Your local Bulgarian baker! Maker of Savory and Sweet Breads, Breakfast Pastries, Fruit Pies, Breadsticks, and Granola.
  • Bagel Uprising (Del Ray) - Are you ready to rebel against dry, stale, flavorless bagels? Look no further! Bagel Uprising offers authentic handmade bagels—boiled and baked in small batches—that will satisfy your craving for the real thing. Bagel sales begin at 10am!! 
  • Captain Xans (Alexandria and Bristol Bay, AK) - Wild caught Alaskan salmon straight from the nets to your table from "the most sustainable fishery on earth!" Flash frozen and never thawed for firmness and taste
On 4MR Stage, ~10am - Noon

It's a little up in the air, but 4MRMarket veteran musician Dan Barry should be onstage.

Dan Barry is a NY native singer/writer living in the DC area in same vein as Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, or Dave Matthews Band.

Remember, the concert is free, but all our performers welcome tips and friendly applause for sharing their craft with you on a lovely Sunday morning
