   After a rainy week, join us on The Avenue for these fantastic spring events happening this Saturday -- great for spring gardening, Mother's Day shopping, home renovation inspiration, and more:

-- Step inside 11 amazing Del Ray homes during the Del Ray Home & Garden Tour from 11am to 5pm on Saturday, May 7. This year’s tour includes homes ranging from a house featured on the cover of Country Living magazine to a modern addition with a rooftop garden. Day-of tickets are $25, and available at the Del Ray Farmer's Market or Greenstreet Gardens (Del Ray location).  

-- The Del Ray Artisans Spring Art Market is a one-day event that gives you the chance to purchase original handmade artwork from talented local artists.  Shop for Mother's Day, graduation, a teacher's gift, birthdays, or just because! The Spring Art Market will take place Saturday, May 7, from 10am to 4pm in the Nicholas A. Colasanto Park, adjoining Del Ray Artisans gallery at 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria.  The event is held RAIN or SHINE, and is free and open to the public.

-- The weekly Del Ray Farmer's Market features 20+ farmers and vendors offering fruits and vegetables, meat, poultry, fish, eggs, cheeses, breads, fresh pasta, baked goods and cut flowers every Saturday morning from 8am to 12pm at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square.
