This time of year it's so hard. There are just TOO MANY cool things to do.
I can't believe it's time for "Claude Moore Colonial Farm's Colonial Summer Market Fair" already.
We have been to two Market Fairs over the last few years and it is hands-down my favorite event in Northern Virginia.
The volunteers do a phenomenal job with authenticity and food (and beer) is top-notched. They have killer meat-pies and veggie-pies, baked olives, roasted chicken among other things.
There is plenty too do, but it's not too overwhelming to go with small children (like the Ren Festival). They always have a Kids Area with a few interesting activities.
Everything is very reasonable and the site is quite lovely.
Claude Moore Farm has three Market Fairs a year. Their Summer Market will be July 19-20th from 11 am - 4:30 pm.
Tickets are $7 for Adults and $3 for Kids.
More information can be found here.
Here are a few photos from the Autumn Market Fair that I never got around to posting.
These two were my favorite from the day.
