Fredericksburg Farmers Market
The Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market his a rich history that pre-dates the founding of the city itself, in 1728. More than 28 vendors showcase and sell their prized produce and other goods here, with great prices on farm-fresh vegetables, fruits, and eggs; freshly baked bread; local wines, high-quality meats, and more. The market’s original Hurkamp Park location is situated in the heart of historic downtown Fredericksburg. Two other market locations have now joined the original – Mayfield Market, at the corner of Tyler and Dixon Streets; and Mary Washington Healthcare Market, at 1001 Sam Perry Boulevard.
Pet-friendly and buzzing with activity, the Saturday markets are a big draw for locals and visitors alike. One frequent market patron writes, “Always a great selection of locally grown produce. You can also buy bath and body products, candles, fresh bread, or even get a wine tasting. Makes for a perfect Saturday morning.”
And what better reason to make a special trip to this popular market than National Farmers Market Week? Mark your calendar for August 3.
