New farmers market in Arlington

Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables plus hormone- and antibiotic-free meats from humanely raised animals will be available to local residents at a farmers market at Marymount University in Arlington. The market is a partnership between the university and the nonprofit Field to Table Inc., an organization that encourages people to establish a relationship with the land by purchasing from local farmers and food preparers.

Twelve vendors, from no farther than 125 miles away, were selected to provide the produce and meats, in addition to small batch craft single origin coffees, barrel-fermented pickles, krauts and kimchi and other specialty foods.
