Foodie Moving to Manassas, VA

Hi all! My husband and I are being stationed in Manassas and I have some foodie questions I was hoping you would be able to answer.

I saw that there is a Whole Foods in DC, do you have Central Market? Are there other less expensive gourmet/organic grocers?

How's the seafood out there? We have been in Hawaii for the past 3 years and I was wondering what type of fish we would get on the Atlantic coast?

Highly recommended CSAs? Organic? I saw a few posts on this but they mostly recommended against some farms. I also saw that most deliver to the DC area which is an hour away. Any closer?

Are there any butchers within an hour or two whom you can buy grass-fed free-range beef from? We are looking to buy a 1/4 to 1/2 a cow from a reputable butcher. Same with chickens.

Any other tips of must go to restuarants or things I should know about living in Manassas and surropunding areas as a foodie. I know I have to learn to make sweet tea being in the South now. Other tips?

Thanks in advance. We're really looking forward to spending some time with you all in VA.
