The market does not have a cozy feel at all--at least not this time of year. It's set up in a parking lot and is really cold when the winter wind blows.
Around 30 vendors congregate at the Arlington market during the regular season. But many of them close shop for the winter. I counted about a dozen hardy souls manning the booths.
Still, there was plenty to choose from. This woman had an impressive array of mushrooms...
We had to stop and admire them.
There was a full line of bread.
And many different kinds of preserves.Meats, too.
We bought a jar of blueberry syrup and some apple cider from D&S Farm in St. Mary's County, MD.
We couldn't resist the honey-flavored yogurt from Blue Ridge Dairy.
I really wanted to buy some turnips, but the closest I could get was this lovely Savoy cabbage.
The beets were quite handsome.
The vegetable empanada was exquisite.
