2019 Season Now Open
The Old Town Farmers Market is now open for the the 2019 Season! Be sure to join us on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through September 28th at the Taylor Pavilion.
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. The market strives to offer a wide variety of items for sale including in-season fruits, vegetables, artisan breads, baked goods, pastured pork, jam, eggs, herbal teas, natural body care products, and many other items (produce and items for sale may vary each week). All items are grown or produced within a 35-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
