Live music, food trucks, and guest chefs are just a few of the things residents got to enjoy at the launch of the new EatLoCo Brambleton Marketplace.
Crimson Fly Marketing and Harper Valley Farms held grand opening for the market on Easter Sunday.
The community-based hub located in Brambleton’s Legacy Park, is a destination for family friendly entertainment and local shopping. Families who attended also got a chance to enjoy some holiday fun.
“We found a need in Loudoun County for a place for farmers to set up their markets and sell their produce,” said Dan Hine, who is the market’s project director.
Hine said his main goal is to keep farmers in the county.
“There used to be over 400 Loudoun County farmers, now we’re under 30 so we’re trying to save the farmers as much as we can,” he said.
“The only way farmers are going to survive is to have people believe in us, invest in the product and want to be able to purchase the product,” said Shane Hughes of Liberty Delight Farms.
The marketplace is open year round and will continue every Sunday from 9 a.m until 1 p.m.
