New agreement will keep Reston Farmers Market at Lake Anne in 2023

Despite a hiccup in the planning process, the popular Reston Farmers Market will remain at the Lake Anne Plaza next year.

Last week, the Fairfax County Park Authority signed a new use agreement with the Lake Anne Reston Condominium Association (LARCA) to continue the market at its longstanding location in 2023.

“We signed a license agreement last week with the Fairfax County Park Authority and we look forward to hosting the County-run Farmer’s Market in 2023,” LARCA President George Hadjikyriakou wrote in a statement.

Contract negotiations were hung up by an issue revolving around insurance, according to Ben Boxer, a spokesperson for the county.

“Farmers Markets have received significant community support at all ten locations throughout the county and we are appreciative of the ongoing partnerships with our vendors and hosts that make this program such a remarkable success,” Boxer said.

Both parties and the county did not comment further on the nature of the issues. Boxer noted that the context of the discussion was related to “contract negotiation,” and Hadjikyriakou deferred additional comment to the county.

Earlier this year, a free summer concert series relocated to Reston Station after the Reston Community Center failed to reach an agreement with LARCA.

The  market takes place at 1608 Washington Plaza North.
