Williamsburg Farmers’ Market expands this year to include a market from 3-7 p.m. on Tuesdays from July 11 to August 29 on Duke of Gloucester Street in front of the College of William and Mary Bookstore, and the Bruton
“The Williamsburg Farmers' Market is building on the success of its Saturday markets,” said market manager Libbey Oliver. “The additional market will allow customers who work to stop by on the way home, families who have activities on Saturday to fit it into their schedules and for everyone to purchase just-picked produce during the week. New bakers and growers who are not available on Saturday will come to the Tuesday markets as well as most of the regulars.”
Vendors who will be displaying their products at the Tuesday markets include:
In addition, Cachalot will sell daylilies in July and Roots & Blooms will sell potted reblooming iris in August.
Founding Sponsors of the Williamsburg Farmers’ Market are The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the Merchants Square Association and the City of Williamsburg. Addtional sponsors for 2006 are: the Riverside Hospital System with marketing support; Towne Bank who sponsors the Chef’s Tent; and Ukrop’s Super Markets who supports musical entertainment.
