The Workhouse is bringing businesses to the community!
We’ve partnered with the South Fairfax Chamber of Commerce to help rebuild the local business community by offering our unique venue to market and sell their goods and services. Check out this great article about the Community Market from the Connection Newspaper.
We also wanted to create a space for people to gather safely, enjoy a great atmosphere and support local business and the arts! So come out Saturday mornings, hike the nearby trails, check out the market, grab some food and enjoy our campus! The Lucy Burns Museum is open 12-5 pm and some of our artist galleries will be open as well.
The Community Market is Saturdays from 9am – 1pm.
