One place we did get to on foot though, was the Dale City Farmers' Market. We woke up on Sunday excited to forget about unpacking boxes for a while and head out for a market. Theo wanted to find apples (he doesn't quite understand seasons yet), and I just wanted to get a feel for the area. So even though it was drizzling rain most of the morning, we waited for a pause in the rain and headed out. It turned out to be a little farther than we thought, and ended up being hot, humid, and sunny by the time we walked back, but it was still a memorable little trip.

The market is probably one of the bigger outdoor ones I've been to, and had basically any kind of spring fruit or vegetable you could possibly want. I was pretty amazed at all the variety. Throw in some cheese, bakery, kettle corn, and wood fired pizza options, and you could leave with most of your taste buds satisfied.
|Theo chose yellow green beans. And ate them.|
|I was very intrigued by the purple bell peppers... maybe next time.|
|Theo picked out and paid for most of the produce. It's great to see him work with cash (though several did accept credit card).|
|I just drizzled some olive oil, salt, and black pepper on these to make a little salad.|
