WILLIAMSBURG-As part of its 20th Anniversary celebrations in 2022, the Williamsburg Farmers Market will hold an exhibition and public reception honoring its vendors.

Board members of the Williamsburg Farmers Market invite members of the community to a reception on Thursday, January 6, beginning at 4:30pm at the Stryker Center, 412 N. Boundary St. The event will include wine, soft drinks, and hors d’oeuvres as well as displays of artwork poster contest entries in honor of the 20th Anniversary and photographs of market vendors through the years. Following the reception, the photo exhibition will be open Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm through Thursday, February 3.

The seasonal farmers market, which typically operates Saturday mornings from March through December on Duke of Gloucester Street in downtown Williamsburg, first began in 2002. Since then, the Williamsburg Farmers Market has grown into one of the most popular farmers markets in the area. The open-air market features a variety of products including seasonal produce, herbs, plants, flowers, eggs, meats, fish, cheeses, baked goods and breads, prepared foods, homemade goods, and other items.

Williamsburg Farmers Market, which closed for its current season on December 18, will hold a special Valentine’s Day holiday market on Saturday, February 12, before returning for its regular weekly markets on Saturday, March 19.

While closed for the season, the market will be accepting pre-orders online for weekly drive-by pickup in the parking lot of Quarterpath Recreation Center, 202 Quarterpath Rd., beginning January 12.

To RSVP to the 20th Anniversary reception, email market manager Tracy Herner at therner@williamsburgva.gov. For more information on the Williamsburg Farmers Market, visit https://williamsburgfarmersmarket.com/.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
