As the weather turns cooler and the leaves begin to change, this is the perfect time to explore the beautiful community of Fairfax. Now that fall is coming into full swing, festivals and farmers markets are all over the county. Here is a roundup of fall weekend activities near Eleven Oaks in Fairfax.
The Fairfax County Park Authority has 11 sites throughout the county that host weekly farmers markets, and there are several other farmers markets sponsored by independent organizations. These markets feature local fruits, vegetables, flowers, baked goods, eggs, honey, cider and cheeses. All products come from vendors located within 125 miles of Fairfax County, and some vendors are based just a few blocks from the markets. Find a farmers market here.
