Williamsburg Farmers' Market expands to include Tuesday markets

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
Parish House.

“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:

  • Amy’s Garden, organic produce, heirloom varieties and cut flowers;
