By shopping from your neighbors at the Fredericksburg Farmers Market, you eat farm-to-table, support your local economy, and know your local growers and makers. How local is “local?” Our products are grown or produced in Virginia, within 75 miles of the City of Fredericksburg!

Does all of this food have you in the mood for a snack? No need to worry. We have kettle corn and lemonade vendors returning to the park again this year for on-the-spot refreshment. This historic market, which began in 1728, is within walking distance of downtown restaurants and other shopping opportunities. And did you know that Fredericksburg Farmers Market is dog-friendly?
