    • Two Georges: 5 Similarities between Washington and the Under-Appreciated Mason
      Washington wasn’t the only “George” to make major contributions to the founding of America. Another one, George Mason, helped to mold many of the ideas we hold dear as intrinsically American, yet he is unfairly neglected as a founder. You may suspect bias, as I’ve just undertaken the role of Mr. Mason in Williamsburg. At...Read More »
    • Have a Question for POTUS? Ask It During Presidents Day Weekend!
      There hasn’t been a Virginian in the White House since Woodrow Wilson a century ago, but back in the day a stream of Old Dominion natives held the nation’s highest office. Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe: from 1789 until 1821, only the second president, Massachusetts’ John Adams, interrupted the Virginia dynasty. All of them spent portions of their... […]
    • At a Loss For Words? Say It with a Founding Valentine!
      Let’s face it, there’s a lot happening in the world right now—matters that are far more serious than Valentine’s Day. Yet, as George Washington wrote in 1786, “it is assuredly better to go laughing than crying thro’ the rough journey of life.” With that in mind, we present these lighthearted, historically-themed Valentine’s Day cards. Or as...Read More » […]

Williamsburg Farmers Market Season Opens March 31

imageThe Williamsburg Farmers’ Market  begins its tenth season with a diversity of products from both new and returning producers.

In 2011, over 38,000 customers shopped at the  WFM; 65 volunteers  added their talents to the success of the market; and  financial and in-kind support came from  27 friends and 9 sponsors.

Nine of the 47 returning vendors have been with the market since 2002 and  5 new vendors have been accepted for 2012.  Additional vendors are still expected.

Click on Vendors to see the list of 32 vendors and their raised or baked products for this coming Saturday.

Producer-Only Market

Since the WFM is a producer-only market the guidelines require vendors to raise, harvest, grow and bake the products they sell. They must reapply each year and supply appropriate inspections and certifications. In this way customers may be assured that food, water, processing plants and kitchens have been checked by licensed employees of state agencies. Crafts are not sold at the market unless they are value-added such as soap made from goat’s milk.

Today’s farmers, watermen and bakers must possess many skills that they never dreamed of ten years ago.  Handling web sites, processing credit cards, attending markets, running CSA’s and delivering to restaurants and schools are part of their busy days which by the way include clearing the weeds from the asparagus fields, milking the cows, hiring the help to pick acres of daffodils, creating new pasta recipes and worrying about the fruit trees blooming too early.

Music

So’lach – Lisa Wathen and Ron Morgan will play Irish, Scottish, sea chanteys and other folk and jazz ballads on a variety of instruments.

PARKING: Prince George Street Garage is now open for $1/hour. The FRANCIS STREET parking lot will continue to be FREE on Saturday until Noon. All other lots are posted as one hour or two hour parking and are patrolled from 8:00 a.m.
