Old Town Farmers Market seeks local vendors and volunteers

The City of Winchester is now accepting vendor applications for the third season of the Old Town Farmers Market. The 2017 Farmers Market will be held on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, May 13-September 30 at the Taylor Pavilion located between the Loudoun Street Mall and Braddock Autopark. The 2016 Farmers Market hosted 15 vendors and had an average of over 1,000 people visit on Saturdays during the summer.

The goal of the Old Town Farmers Market is to provide fresh, local food and agricultural products directly from farmers and producers to residents, while creating an enjoyable atmosphere that contributes to a prosperous downtown and promotes a sense of community in Old Town Winchester.

The Old Town Farmers Market is comprised of local farms, local artisans and others bringing items from the surrounding area.  The market is always looking for new vendors to add variety to the market and strives to offer a wide variety of items for sale including in-season fruits, vegetables, artisan breads, cookies, cheese, grass fed beef, gluten free bread, cured meats, jam, eggs, honey and many other items (produce and items for sale may vary each week). All items have been grown or produced within a 60-mile radius of Winchester.

Seeking Vendors, Musicians and Volunteers

  • Vendors – Seeking locally-grown and locally-made items for the weekly farmers market. Cost to participate in the market is $20 per week. Parking will be provided for most vendors in the Braddock Street lot.

  • Volunteers – To assist on market days with set-up, clean-up and market operations under the direction of the Market Coordinator.
