Finding Fresh and Local Fare at the Leesburg Winter Market

Open on Saturdays mornings, the market is a popular even in cold weather.

Even when the temperature is chilly outside, Saturday mornings have a warm spirit at the winter farmers market in Leesburg.

Featuring about 20 vendors, the market has everything from fruits and vegetables, homemade salsa, soups, meats, cheeses, baked goods, local vineyards and honey. 

One way to warm up is to stop at The Catoctin Coffee Company, from Lovettsville, who sells their hand-roasted coffee beans and hot coffee. 

“We are here every week, business is great.  It has been hard for me to keep up with it today,” said Dave Capritta, whose wife Kellie owns the business.

Ed Clark of Leesburg had one thing on his mind to buy at the market - rosemary breadsticks from Stuff of Life Bread Co.  “These are the best,” Clark said.

“This year round market is good, and it is worth the trip,” said Mike Whetzal of Stuff of Life Bread Co.  He drives two hours from Rockingham County to sell his baked goods at the market every week.

There are plenty of fresh vegetables available, even in the winter. 

Roberto’s Produce from Montross, VA sells swiss chard, spinach, turnips, arugula, herbs, broccoli and cabbage. 

“This is our first time here, it has been a great morning and we’ll be back,” said Robert Medina of Roberto’s Produce.

The Leesburg Winter Farmers Market runs from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Saturdays.  It is located at 20 Catoctin Cir, SE in Leesburg.  Loudounfarmersmarkets.org.

Thanks for the great article about our hardy Leesburg Winter Market vendors & loyal customers! Actually, the bread vendor's name is "Staff of Life" and baker/owner Abbey actually grinds some of the grains into flour for her delicious breads. Judy Stroske, LVHMC Market Coordinator
