In 2009 the market was voted the #1 market in the nation among mid-size markets in America’s Favorite Farmers Markets Contest! Since then the market has continued to be in the top 10 in the nation and with your vote can be #1.
The goal of American Farmland Trust’s annual America’s Favorite Farmers Markets contest is to highlight the role that farmers markets play in keeping family farmers on the land. The summer long contest is a nationwide challenge to see which markets can rally the most votes from their customers. At the end of the contest, four winning markets—one small, one medium, one mid-size, and one large—will receive the title of America’s Favorite Farmers Market for 2012. The winning markets will be featured in the media and will be honored at local celebrations organized by American Farmland Trust.
Here is what one Williamsburg Farmers Market customer had to say:
“This market takes great pride in promoting locally grown/harvested products-vegetables, seafood, baked items, berries, cheeses, peanuts, flowers, etc. . .
The market, Held on Merchant’s Square in Williamsburg, Virginia, retains the air of a modern-day marketplace, bustling with trade amidst the historic buildings that once played a key role in our country’s Colonial era. From pawpaw fruit to peanuts and seafood, the vendors at the Williamsburg Farmers Market showcase a true variety of local and regional products. (The market is also known as the place to meet for the community’s canine citizens.)
