I was recently out with a friend for lunch and, knowing my interest in local foods, she took me to a small grocery in Falls Church, called Nourish Market. It turned out to be a wonderful find for those looking for local products.
A little oasis next to a party store in a strip mall off Broad Street/route 7, entering Nourish Market feels like you’ve come to the right place. It’s a combination cafe and foods market, serving fresh local ingredients in sandwiches, salads and sweets.
In its refrigerated cases, they offer local milk from Trickling Springs Creamery from Chambersburg, Pa. and ice cream from Moorenko’s based in Silver Spring, Md. In the freezer is grass-fed beef from Chicama Run farm in Purcellville, Va. On the shelves, they’ve got everything natural and organic. I came home with some nice glucosamine dog treats for my canine friend.
In addition, they offer local foodie events such as wine tastings, and food education offerings such as a recent session on the tradition of soda pops as tonics and learning how to make your own.
