  1. The City of Alexandria hosts a year-round farmers market at Southern Towers, just up the way at Seminary Road across from the big hotel. The market is usually large - especially in the summer - and has some amazing quality produce. It compares favorably with the FC farmers markets, although it is organized differently: they have a manager who brings in vendors but has a single point-of-sale. Still, some very good items are available there - Saturday mornings, I believe.
