Welcome to Smart Markets – the very first private, non-profit established to operate farmers’ markets in Northern Virginia.  We are slowly putting together what will be a rich, informative web site that will involve you and your family in all aspects of our activity on behalf of the vendors and customers who shop with us. I will be blogging several times a week to let you know what’s available at the markets and what’s in the news about healthy eating among other things.  We are so busy right now with our opening day preparations – I am meeting soon with two Board members about our initial outreach activities and then this afternoon I will be in Reston to meet with the Reston Town Center personnel about details of our use agreement for their Reston Town Square.  So you won’t hear from me as often in the next few weeks as you will after we open the markets but keep in touch and continue to visit the site for new information and links.  Thanks for your interest.  Jean
