The Williamsburg Farmers’ Market was established for growers and producers of Eastern Virginia to sell fresh seasonal food and farm products directly to the residents and guests in the Greater Williamsburg area. Held in Merchants Square, farmers’ markets are held monthly in February, March and April, and weekly beginning in May and running through October. Holiday markets are held in November and December.
