Have you ever been to the local Arlington Farmers Market that is held in Courthouse every Saturday 8 a.m to noon? Well if you haven't, we are going to give you a reason why you should wake up early after a late night to attend. Not only does the Arlington Farmers Market offer fresh and delicious products from local vendors, it provides one of the best hidden gems in Arlington, Mac's Donuts. Known for their signature trademark item, "stick-o-donuts," Mac's hot apple cider donuts have been a crowd favorite since 2009. These stick-o-donuts are served straight out of a blue spray painted food truck which makes them that much more authentic. The first time we visited Mac's Donuts, we had never seen such a unique concept to serve these delicious treats. As a customer, you have two simple choices: stick-o-donuts (1/2 dozen) for $3 or bag-o-donuts (1 dozen) for $5.

The best part is that these apple cider donuts are served old fashioned style with a powdered sugar shaker to allow customers to sprinkle on as much sugar as they desire. With just one bite, the hot mini donut melted in our mouths sending us into pure donut bliss (and back in line to order another stick)! Mac's Donuts makes it difficult to not want to eat all six donuts within seconds because of their mouthwatering flavor.

While Mac's Donuts are typically only available on Saturdays at the Arlington Farmers Market, Mac offers catering and private events for the true donut lover. To visit Mac's Donuts, head to the Arlington Farmers Market this Saturday at 14th Street N. at N Courthouse Road, Arlington, Virginia and look for their blue van or check out their Facebook page.
