There are so many reasons we love Downtown Arlington, including the entrepreneurial and creative spirit of our many small business owners.
In celebration of that spirit, the City of Arlington offers a Small Business initiative entitled Customer Appreciation Week. Through on-site displays and online promotion, the initiative will help highlight local businesses and the goods and services they offer, right here in the heart of the American Dream City.
The Downtown Arlington Foodies Farmer's Market is the most recent Downtown business to be highlighted by the City's popular Customer Appreciation Week sponsorship program.
Downtown Arlington Foodies Farmer's Market
The Downtown Arlington Foodies Farmer's Market, which launched in January 2019, is monthly collaboration between Arlington Foodies, Downtown Arlington Management Corporation (DAMC), Legal Draft Beer Co., and a plethora of other enthusiastic partners and vendors.
Arlington Foodies, a non-profit that supports community-building through health and wellness initiatives, hosts the Farmers Market adjacent to Legal Draft, 500 E. Division Street, from 2:00 - 6:00 p.m. on the second Saturday of every month.
For more information about the market, visit the website or the Facebook event. If your business is interested in becoming a Farmer's Market vendor, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
