“Must see in the heart of town”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Living just 3 miles from the little town of Smithfield I go there often. Saturday is a great day to take in so much. I really enjoy going to the Smithfield Farmers Market from 9 to 12 on Saturdays from May to Nov. This market has everything from baked goods (Bread to pastries),crops fresh out of the fields to arts and crafts. There is hand made jewelry, beautiful wooden goods, decorative garden items, hand made quilts and children's items, plants, honey and kettle corn stirred right in front of you. The local SPCA is there so you can adopt a pet and some booths even have chickens for sale. There is refreshments and music done by locals (usually guitar groups etc.) This is right in the heart of town in a parking lot behind a bank. Plenty of parking and you can walk the downtown and take in shops, restaurants, antique stores, Isle of Wight museum, Christmas shop or just enjoy the many Victorian and period homes through this seaport town. The market is great and I always come away with something! Pets welcomed on leash.

“A Saturday Morning Tradition!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Enjoy fresh seasonal produce, ready-made foods & beverages, and homemade gifts from Greater Smithfield. Dogs are welcome on leash and this very-well attended Market is a gem in the region.

Thank you for visiting the Smithfield Farmers Market! We're sorry the market wasn't as big as you would like it. We typically have about 35 vendors each Saturday -- and sometimes up to 50 for our big markets. I'm not sure what day you visited, but on bad weather days (or days when rain is predicted), some of our vendors have to stay at home because the weather will ruin their products. We usually have produce, baked goods, meats, cheeses, eggs, soaps, beauty products, pet products, hand-crafted items, and more -- along with live music. We hope you come back to visit if you are ever back in our area!
