About Us / Mount Vernon Farmers Market History: Wednesdays, 8AM - 12PM, May through October. This Fairfax County Farmers Market offers a feast for the senses, and a connection with food producers that was more common in previous generations. The market offers a wide variety of freshly picked fruits, vegetables, and cut flowers. There are also fresh eggs, baked goods, honey and cider to purchase. Milk and cheese products, along with a wide array of meat products, round out the edible delights. If gardening is an interest, many vendors have small plants at the beginning of the season, while other vendors have larger landscape plants for those ambitious projects. The Farmers Markets are supervised by the Fairfax County Park Authority through the Community Horticulture office based at Green Spring Gardens. The daily operations of the markets are managed by volunteer Market Masters.
