market1One of my favorite things to do in Leesburg is spend some time at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings. Open from 8 to noon, sunshine or rain, in the Virginia Village Shopping Center, the market is full of wonderful locally grown products. The merchants offer a variety of fruits and vegetables during the season. Last week-end, the raspberries and blueberries made their grand entrance, and this week-end, it should be corn’s turn to come by just in time for the 4th of July celebrations. The Bigg Riggs Farms‘ baby squashes and zuchinnis are amongst our favorites with Chef Eloy’s mango salsa and the Mill Road Farm honey. The meat products are a bit expensive, but the bacon from Baker pork is worth every penny. I also bought a few times yogurt from the Blue Ridge Dairy Co. and of course some human cookies from Lola Cookies and some dog cookies from Chase your tail bakery.

Why not try to get the place the Rust Library used during its renovation? Some products like the meat, cheese, honey, sauce, etc. could be sold all the time. No need to wait only for Saturdays! But then again, maybe the joy of Saturday morning market’s adventures would be diminished by it…
