If you are missing buying your favorite foods from our vendors - fear not! Some of our intrepid farmers, bakers and OJ making vendors are braving the cold at some of the other Alexandria markets that are open all winter. Here is the list of who is standing out in the cold waiting for you and at which market.
OLD TOWN MARKET: Courthouse Square on Saturdays from 5:30AM to 11AM.
(I know, I know - it is early!)
Herbal Curiosities: Salves, creams, lip balm and herbal concoctions to keep you healthy. http://www.facebook.com/HerbalCuriosities
Billie's Flowers: Billie and his motley crew are still giving away free single blooms to entice you to stop and smell (and buy) the roses - and daisies and carnations and evergreen bouquets
Fresh Joseph: Cheryl and Joseph provide a big dose of Vitamin C with their fresh-squeezed OJ. Don't forget to stock up for the week of Christmas!
DEL RAY MARKET: Mount Vernon Avenue in downtown Del Ray on Saturdays from 8Am to noon.
Run over to Del Ray and have some breakfast, stock up on some vegies, fruits, nuts, cheese and baked goods, then have a good time walking up and down and checking out the stores. You are bound to be entertained!
Tommy's Cheese Store and More. Our favorite skamp - Tommy Tompkins is holding down the winter fort at Del Ray. If you miss his cheese, dairy, jams, honey and baked goods - it is not that far to go.
The Dressed Up Nut. Oh my they keep coming up with the most delicious new flavors of nuts - so terrific they will make your knees buckle.
Marianna's Macarons: Marianna and her handsome hubby did so well at our market they decided to extend the season by selling at Del Ray until Christmas. If you want some of her macaroons after that you will have to order them at: http://www.getmacarons.com/wordpress/. They are perfect for parties and she has a new Italian-made Macaron tower that will make your party look like Ivana Trump decorated it!
I hope this makes each of you want to run out this weekend and see your favorite vendors. I will keep you posted on other vendor
