Old Town Farmers Market Details:
The 2018 Market will be held Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., May 12 through September 29.
The Saturday market is located at the Taylor Pavilion at 119 N. Loudoun Street, just steps from the Loudoun Street Mall and the Braddock Autopark.
New this year, we are offering a Summer Midday Market on Thursdays, June 7 through August 30, on the Loudoun Street Mall in front of the Old 1840 Courthouse at 20 N. Loudoun Street.
The goal of the Old Town Farmers Market is to provide fresh, local food and agriculture products directly from farmers and producers to residents, while creating an enjoyable atmosphere that contributes to a prosperous downtown and promotes a sense of community in Old Town Winchester.
The Old Town Farmers Market is comprised of local farms, local artisans and others sharing items from the surrounding area. We are always looking for new vendors to add variety to the market. The market has a community approach and encourages lingering and local entertainment. For the 2018 season, we have 12 local vendors participating in the Saturday market some every week and others on a rotating basis. The market strives to offer a wide variety of items for sale including in-season fruits, vegetables, artisan breads, cookies, cheese, grass fed beef, gluten free bread, cured meats, jam, eggs, honey and many other items (produce and items for sale may vary each week). All items are grown or produced within a 100-mile radius of Winchester.
Contact Jennifer Bell, Downtown Manager, or Sarah Acuff Chapman, Market Coordinator with any questions. (540) 535-3660 or OTW@winchesterva.gov
