Summer Event at the Wonderful Westover Farmers Market in Arlington, Va.

Many of you know I’m a long time sponsor of the Westover Farmer’s Market. I’ve been doing this since it’s inception because I believe it’s best to buy local and it’s wonderful to have this in our community. On Sunday along with my friend and realtor Jody Chittum and lender Ed Duncan, I will holding raffles for some wonderful freebies including a Yeti Cooler, yeti coffee mugs, bamboo cutting boards. We’ll be passing out free flower and herb seeds and will have a face painter for kids (or more adventurous adults). Please come and say hello. And remember if you ever have a real estate or community question always feel free to contact me. I’m right here in the neighborhood. Jane Jensen 571-228-5656 janejensen4@gmail.com

Westover Village in Arlington, Va.-My “walk to” neighborhood

I just posted a link to an article talking about how Arlington is one of the most walkable cities. I live near the East Falls Church Metro and my “walk to” neighborhood is Westover Village. The commercial area of Westover is located on Washington Blvd between N. Mckinley Rd. and Longfellow Streets. The businesses here and the the library provide a modern urban feel to this neighborhood. Residents in this area also have easy (healthy walk, or metro bus) access to the East Falls Church Metro.

In Recent Years, the Westover Beer Garden has provided a neighborhood gathering place. On warmer evenings you can find gatherings of friends and families listening to music and sampling some excellent craft beers. The beer garden also now has an indoor bar and restaurant. The adjacent grocery has a decent stock of must haves.
