The Meadow Market boasts a variety of food trucks, vendors, and spectator experiences.

Meadow Market is an open-air market located above the main arena. The Meadow Market is next to the VIP tailgates and food trucks on the shady racecourse side of the arena.

“Great Meadow is truly a special place in the heart of Northern Virginia horse country,” said David O’Connor, the co-organizer of the event. “We are especially excited to broaden the reach of this event to be more inclusive of our community members, businesses, and organizations who share our love of open space, animal well-being, and the Piedmont.”
