Manassas City Farmer’s Market serves up local freshness and hospitality

By: CCN Manassas —

There’s a little bit of country in the City of Manassas. And locals are chatting about the bountiful Virginia-grown produce and home-made goods being displayed and sold.  The Farmer’s Market is open every Thursday and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  A great way to start the day — coffee and yummy frosted sweet rolls are for sale too.

Ron, the welcoming host, offered a complimentary Historic Manassas green tote to ease the shopping load. His wife, Grace, is employed with City of Manassas Public Schools Food Services.  She works at Osbourn High School preparing and serving up meals for the always-hungry students.

The vendors offered something for everyone — even guitar music by Woodbridge Willie. In-season produce such as cucumbers, berries, green beans, squash and cabbage were abundant. Unique jewelry, vibrant flowers, honey, meats, sandwiches and amazing breads and pastries were also being sold.

Sam and John Sessou, Becky’s Pastries, loaded up their stand with scrumptious-looking temptations such as cinnamon apple bread, raspberry tart, apricot, blueberry and cherry cake and blueberry scones baked last night.

On Thursday, the Farmer’s Market will provide samples to Manassas-area hotel managers from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Harris Pavilion to promote Virginia-grown produce and local goods.
