It will be smaller than the prime market but just as good. SNAP still accepted. Saturdays through March 16, 8:00 a. m. – 1:00 p. m. | 9024 Prince William Street, Manassas
The Dale City Farmers Market has nearly 50 vendors and is one of the largest farmers markets in the region.

Sundays through March, 10:00 a. m. – 1:00 p. m. | VDOT Commuter Lot (off Dale Boulevard), 14090 Gemini Way, Dale City
