A Farmers' market will be held outside of Manassas Park City Hall every Friday through at least the end of the year, Manassas Park Department of Parks and Recreation officials said this week.
The market is from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. at 1 Park Center Court right across from City Center.
Shoppers can get fresh produce from farmers who grow in the Northeast and elsewhere. The farmers are expected to return in the spring for a series of markets in the city.
The first farmers' market was Oct. 26 in the parking lot of the Railroad Building near the Virginia Railway Express stop on Manassas Drive.
In addition to fresh fruits, the market featured brick oven pizza, latin foods, baked goods, seasonings and dressings as well as music and an animal balloon maker.
The goal of the market is to provide an open venue for the sale of low-cost healthy foods and other options.
