Come one, come all to our first-ever local artisan market! On Friday, Sept. 28 from 5 to 8 p.m., Around Town Artisans is bringing a pop-up shopping experience to our circle drive at 6201 Virginia Parkway.  Visitors will enjoy live acoustic music by Pat Harrigan and food sampling. They’ll be able to meet the providers of farm-fresh produce, eggs, meats, cheeses, jams, baked goods, soaps, salsa, and more! Jim from CF Sharpening services will be here, so bring your dull scissors, kitchen knives, garden tools, and pocket knives to drop off early in the evening. Jim will sharpen them on the spot for a fee. (You must pick up your items by 8 p.m.) View the PDF list of artisans who will be in attendance.
