The fall harvest has arrived at local farmers markets - Washington PostTuesday, September 26, 2017
Yes, you pay more than at the Giant but the food is local; farmers come to the D.C. area from West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.Lois Allensworth departs her 150-acre farm in Leedstown, Va., before dawn in a truck loaded with tomatoes, garlic and eggplant. She leaves around 4 a.m. to make it to Falls Church with enough time to set up her “Lois’s Produce” stand. The early birds start flowing in at 8 a.m., and the morning goes by fast.She’s been hawking her vegetables, grown in the rich soil of the Northern Neck, at the Falls Church Farmers Market since it first opened in 1984.“We grow a variety of vegetables and even supply Whole Foods with melons. Our prize product is probably tomatoes. We are not an ‘organic’ farm but use the least amount of fertilizer and pesticides as possible,” Allensworth said.As the consumer trend of eating more local and sustainably grown food has mounted, the number of farmers markets exploded in the 2000s. “There were 8,268 farmers markets operating in 2014, up 180 percent since 2006,” NPR said. But according to the USDA, the growth has plateaued lately because the market for locally grown food has become saturated. This is actually believed to be a good thing and is related to the maturation of farmers markets.So head out this weekend to your neighborhood farmers market and take part in the fall bounty our region provides. But before you go, check out the mouthwatering pictures below for a flavor of what’s available at the award-winning Falls Church Farmers Market.A worker at Lois’s Produce stand hands a customer an eggplant.
