Ashburn, Virginia—One Loudoun Holdings, LLC and the Loudoun Valley HomeGrown Markets Cooperative (LVHMC) are proud to announce the grand opening of the One Loudoun Farmers’ Market on Saturday, September 6, 2014 from 8am-12pm in the parking lot of The Club at One Loudoun, located at 44605 Russell Branch Parkway.
Currently known as the Ashburn Farmers’ Market, the weekly event will be renamed and relocated from the corner of Ashburn Village Boulevard and Farmwell Road, to One Loudoun this fall. The market will continue to operate at its current location through the end of August.
“We have enjoyed our current location for many years,” said Warren Howell, President of the LVHMC Board of Directors. “Now it’s time to reach out to more folks in Ashburn and we look forward to offering a more diverse range of fresh products to both our current and new customers at One Loudoun.”
The market consists of more than a dozen vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, eggs, artisan baked goods, honey, baby food, jellies, sauces and much more. Gluten free options for some products are also available. LVHMC markets are “producers only,” meaning the vendor must be the grower or producer of all the products they sell. All vendors also must operate within a 125-mile radius of Leesburg, Virginia.
“One Loudoun is excited to bring the LVHMC and their market to our community,” said Bill May, Managing Director of One Loudoun. “We look forward to the local food offerings and know the market will be a great place for neighbors to gather.”
The One Loudoun Farmers’ Market will operate every Saturday from 8am-12pm in September and October for 2014, with plans to reopen the market in May 2015 for a full summer at One Loudoun.
