Farmer’s Market Fridays: The Williamsburg, VA Farmer’s Market

If you are in Williamsburg for the weekend from April through October you must stop by the Farmers’ Market, in Colonial Williamsburg’s Merchants Square. It abounds with town charm, friendly people and a wide variety of top-notch vendors. Below are snaps of some of our favorite things.

I had to get something sweet from the market (besides the aforementioned breakfast) and this cranberry pistachio from Chocolate Cravings was just perfect.

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning. This market is not just people “grocery shopping”, it is friends and neighbors chatting in groups, kids running around, dogs taking in the smells, vendors animatedly talking about their offerings with customers. The energy is positive and the sense of community is infectious. And you will walk away with a bag of goodies, even if you’re just visiting.
