The farmers are no longer wearing shorts, but the Reston Market is still going strong in a new location.

New Location for Smart Markets Reston

Welcome back to another yummy, buy local blog carnival!

As many of you who live in the D.C. area know, my husband and I sponsored the location of the Smart Market farmers market at our National Realty office. Well, the market was so successful, they quickly outgrew our parking lot. Luckily, the Reston Association invited them to exhibit their wares in the parking lot directly, catty corner across the street from us!

The location is not as visible, and their patronage seems to have dropped off precipitiously. So please, spread the word! The new hours for the Farmers Market are 3:00pm – 6:00pm and will go through December 26th. The new address is 12001 Sunrise Valley Drive. Get directions on this map.

Don’t leave your farmer out in the cold! Shop for all your Thanksgiving needs at your local farm market or food buying club!

Now, bloggers, please share your inspiring recipes to tantalize and tempt others to try traditional, home cooking! Don’t forget to link back to this post from your blog.

Here is Mr. Linky!


  1. Thanks for hosting! I left a recipe for butternut squash gratin. It is delicious and when served in the baby pumpkins, so cute for a Thanksgiving side dish! Enjoy!
