Market Week Number Two  

Posted by Downtown Front Royal Farmers Market Blog

The Downtown Front Royal Farmer's Market is now officially two weeks into our season, and everything is going great! Our producers are bringing more and more fresh fruits and vegetables every day, and out crafters keep bringing more unique hand-made products.

A few tips for our market shoppers:

1. Come early! - Fresh produce sells quickly, and our farmers are often sold out before the market closes.

2. Ask questions! - If you don't see what you're looking for, ask. Many of our producers might have already sold out of the item you wanted, but will have it again on the next market day.

3. Visit every stand! - Our market has a wide variety of fresh produce, and hand-made products such as candles, lotions, soaps, and more. If you skip a stand or two, you might not see something that you need.

The market hours are:

Every Thursday from 4:00pm - 8:00pm

Every Saturday from 8:00am - 1:00pm

We'll see you at the market!

Opening Weekend  

Posted by Downtown Front Royal Farmers Market Blog

Thursday June 18th was the opening day for the Front Royal Farmer's Market. We're proud to say that the weather cooperated and we had a wonderful turnout of both customers and vendors. This was an encouraging start to the market, and everyone's spirits were high at closing time.

Saturday the 20th started with light rain and cloudy skies. The weather forecast called for showers on and off throughout the day, but the rain couldn't keep market-goers and vendors away. Saturday's foot traffic was high in between periods of rain, and many Front Royal residents braved the rain with umbrellas in hand to get their pick of some of the freshest vegetables, eggs, honey, jams, and other produce. Many vendors picked their offerings before the market opened that morning. It doesn't get much fresher than that!

We even had some local entertainers come out and play live music for everyone. What a great treat!

See you next Thursday!
