4MR Winter Market Reminder: Bring it In(side) For the Real Thing!

The Four Mile Run Winter Market (4MR Winter Market) will be open every Sunday from 9am until 1pm from November 29th through about Mid-April 2016 in Four Mile Run Park at 4109 Mt Vernon Avenue, Alexandria. (click here for directions)

2 years ago we experimented with an indoor market in a cold November.
This time it's for the whole winter!
You may not see all the tents that you're used to seeing, but inside that bright red building at 4109 Mt. Vernon Ave the brand new 4MR Winter Market is kicking off!

The Four Mile Run Conservatory Center will play host to most of the vendors you know and love from 4MRMarket, plus probably some new vendors in the next week or two.

At the first winter market, we know that C&T Produce, Tom's Amish Cheese, and Second Rising will all be there! C&T Produce will have wreaths, swags, and more Christmas-y decorations along with lots of cold weather produce.

Next Sunday, Bagel Uprising will be back for the season with Savory N' Sweet, Felicity's Handcrafted Soaps, Whole Health, Sun & Moon Accessories and more!


This is a general list of the vendors that will be at 4MR Winter Market throughout the season.
(Note that individual vendors may be off from time-to-time.)
  • C & T Produce (White Oak, VA) - A huge selection of locally grown produce from a locally, family-run farm in Stafford, Virginia.

Composting at 4MR Winter Market!
At least for the next few weeks, composting will continue at 4MR Winter Market! The City is still working out its resources for the winter after that. At least for now, bring your non-animal-based food scraps in any type of container you choose, or purchase one on-site for a very low fee. And tell them how much you want them to support composting at 4MR Winter Market all season!
