We have had many fun Saturday mornings at Merchant Square's Farmers Market. There is always an abundance of local produce, bakery items, jams and jellies, seafood, cheeses, pastas, etc. Sometimes there are cooking demos by local chefs and tastings! You can eat as you go!

I try to avoid going to the Farmer's Market for my waist level and budget! Great selection of produce, organic farm raised products. Delicious pies, breads, pastries, scones, etc from a number of bakers. Great vendor that sells creamed honey from their own bees! The dogs love it too and get to do their socializing Sat AM. It gets crowded... More

Every Saturday from 8 to noon locally grown produce, and restaurants are open serving local food set in historic Williamsburg. If you like scenic walks and historic sights mixed with a lite brunch this a great little spot on Saturdays

There are a lot of booths here. Many are cash only, but some accept credit cards. The cool thing is they have their own token based economy, where you can buy little wooden tokens with a card and use those to pay at booths. Cash is definitely the simplest option, though. There's a lot of variety. Aroma's has their booth... More

We skipped the hotel breakfast in lieu of a trip the the Farmers Market on Saturday morning. Thank goodness we did. It was great. We met some lovely people selling jams and cheese, coffee and pastry, lamb and honey. It was quaint and charming, busy without being crowded and everything we tasted was delicious!

There were maybe 20 or so vendors. While their items looked appealing, they were not extensive. We didn't end up purchasing anything, and we left after only 30 minutes. It was an interesting way to pass some time until Colonial Williamsburg opened, but I wouldn't make a special trip.

Thank you for your review. As a producer-only market, the Williamsburg Farmers Market vendors only sell what they grow, make or catch themselves. While produce begins to come into season in April, and the farmers are doing amazing things to extend their growing seasons, the market doesn't have the full variety of vendors until May. We hope you will visit... More

I love going to the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. There is a mix of vendors and honestly, I only go for the fresh veggies and meat. There is a small, but good, selection of organic and non-organic produce. For a small tourist town, the farmers market is nice to have.

This is the place to come every Saturday morning for a few hours of music, eating and shopping among local purveyors. Located at Merchants Square, convenient to Old Colonial Williamsburg. On the Saturday we visited, we were delighted to see many local farmers selling produce, honey, jams, peanuts, oysters, crabs, pasta, baked goods, sausages, and more. Other non food items... More

I'm a true fan of farmer's markets and this is one of my favorites. This market is in a great location, and has wonderful vendors showing all the bounty of the area - fruits, vegetables, seafood, baked goods and peanuts (don't miss the peanuts!). The vendors are very friendly, there are cooking demonstrations from local chefs, and nearby bathrooms. If... More
