“Farmers Market & More!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

This farmer's market features fresh seasonal veggies, fabulous home baked goods and local crafters. I have visited several times a year for the past five years and note that the market grows larger each time (this time there were 65 vendors). Live music from local artists provides additional charm. The whole community appears to come out in support of the market (many with their children and pets) so there is a festive atmosphere. Not to be missed are the delicious baked goods at the Yummaries booth (delectable homemade pound cakes, cheese biscuits, fruit breads, cookies, jams and much much more), From the Hearth Pizza (using locally sourced ingredients and baked in a portable oven right on the premises), Country Boys BBQ (recommend the smoked brisket and the delicious side dishes) and Mamma Linda's Pasta (freshly made egg noodles in numerous varieties). The farmer's market is often combined with other events occurring in Smithfield so parking is sometimes not available on Main Street. In these cases, it is a good idea to park in a lot on Cedar Street, which is also very convenient to the market. This is an outside market so remember to dress appropriately and bring your reusable shopping bags if you have them. Very nice public bathrooms are located less than a block away on Main Street.

“Great selection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I go here several times throughout the spring, summer and fall, mostly for produce. Great selection, lots of activity. Equal parts produce and handmade items. Yummaries baked goods are great as are the treats from the Greek bakery (can't remember the name)!

“Dont miss this,,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Large selection of not only food, but crafts, much more like he set up at a fair as far as the food you can eat there, everything there was nice quality and reasonably priced. Right off main street opens at 9, shops open at 10.

“Trip to Smithfield, VA: Do this on Saturday to catch the Farmers Market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

If your interested in an excursion to a small town with a great history, spectacular water views and rustic main street combined with fresh product, Smithfield VA is your town. A quick stop will score you some fresh produce, a smile and a great day for summer as we close on the warmer months of the year. There are plenty of historical sites around but without the bustle of tons of tourists. There were even streets lined with antiques cars and town pride as you enjoy a great day in the heart of one of the oldest settlements in America. If your an hour or less away, this is a no-brainer for your next excursion this coming weekend. As another option, the Olden Days festival is the last weekend (29 June) in Smithfield. That will bring in tons of activities for kids as well. You will like this little town.
