The mission of LVHMC is to promote local, sustainable and organic agriculture, increase economic opportunities for farmers and small food businesses, to offer experiential learning about and access to healthy local foods, and to build a vibrant gathering place for residents and visitors.The Leesburg Farmers Market was founded in 1994. Due to its popularity and loyal following, the market became year-round in October 2006. Today, we host 5 additional, seasonal markets at locations throughout Loudoun County. On market days faithful shoppers attend the market because it connects them with their food sources.To sell at our “producer-only” markets, vendors must grow, raise, or make from scratch, ALL products they offer to you. In addition, our member vendors must produce those goods within a 125-mile radius of the market. That means the season for each fruit and vegetable is longer.
Live Plant: Native to North Africa, this herb is considered an adaptogen which means it helps controls the bodies stress response. Roots are part used and can be harvested after the first year. For bigger roots grow in large pots, over winter indoors and harvest at the end of the second year.
