Saturday Mornings are for the Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market! 

Culpeper, VA. Everyone’s favorite Saturday morning activity returns May 6th from 7:30 am to 12:00 pm at the Culpeper Baptist Church parking lot (318 South West Street). Enjoy the longest running, most successful Farmers Market in the area, the Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market, just blocks away from the heart of Culpeper Downtown!

This family friendly Market, brought to you by Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. (CRI), welcomes you in the 2023 season with exciting new, and returning, full and part-time vendors that truly offer something for everyone. So not only can you stock your fridge, freezer and pantry, but you’ll also be supporting local farmers, growers and craft artisans in the process. In addition to supporting local small businesses, there are so many other benefits to shopping the Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market, including knowing where your food comes from, protecting the environment, having nutrient rich, in season whole food choices, not to mention the quality of the freshest and most local produce, meats and more, plus enjoy open-air shopping at a Market where you don’t have to dodge boxes and carts!

Evan Boone, Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market Committee Chairman and owner/farmer of Three Springs Farm says, “As a committee we are super excited about the Farmers Market this year. It’s always an exciting time and we love how the downtown community really rallies around the Farmers Market coming back every spring. We are so thankful for all our customers.” Customers have a lot to look forward to with new vendors including: A Taste for Rustic, Baire’s Choice Mushrooms, Erin’s Elderberries, Fair Winds Farms, Peak View Garden Farm, Court’s Kitchen, Flowers & Floof, Hardigan Farms, Mars Makes!, Native Shire and Persimmons Hollow Farm. Not to worry though as many of our favorite vendors have returned for the season, including: Barajas Produce, C & T Produce, Corvallis Farms, Double L Farm & Apiary, Great Harvest Bread Company, Green Barn Bakery, Gringo Mama Salsa, Hock Newberry Farm, Jacked Up Foods, Loving Paws Big & Small, Mandi’s Dandie’s, One Twenty Seven Coffee, Piedmont Farm & Greenhouse, Son of a Bear Ciders, Sunshine Acres Farm, Tana’s Kitchen, Three Springs Farm, Too Hot To Candle, Willowlyn Farms Produce, AnteSEEDent, Rapidan River Master Gardeners and Spelled Ink.

Culpeper Renaissance is thrilled to bring back the ever-popular kid’s I’m SOW Healthy Youth Nutrition Education program during the 2023 Market season, thanks to grant funding from the Community Assistance and Culpeper Foundation Funds from Northern Piedmont Community Foundation. The I’m SOW Healthy Youth Nutrition Education program includes healthy, seasonal recipes, along with $5 Farm Fresh Dollars, available to children ages 2 to 13, once a month, to purchase fresh produce and foods or even food producing plants at the Market. Additionally, this program features live cooking demonstrations the second Saturday of every month. Bring the kids out to learn and get excited about their food, while enjoying the theme of the season, “Get out and Play”!

Are you a SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) recipient and looking to double your spending power, while receiving quality customer care and the freshest, local ingredients? Then be sure to visit the Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market every Saturday where you can purchase tokens to use at the Market, with CRI matching the amount spent, up to 25 bonus tokens. This means, if you swipe your EBT card for $20, you will receive a total of $40 in Market tokens! This program returns in 2023 thanks to CRI fundraising efforts and grant funding from Northern Piedmont Community Foundation. The SNAP matching program is available throughout the season, or until funds are exhausted.

Culpeper Renaissance, Inc. and the Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market can offer such quality programs, not only through grant funding, but because of strong community partnerships that include the Virginia Cooperative Extension – Culpeper, Culpeper Human Services/Kid Central, Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission and the Culpeper Baptist Church.

The Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market season runs every Saturday, rain or shine, May through October, from 7:30 am to 12:00 pm, at the Culpeper Baptist Church parking lot (318 South West Street). On select Saturdays throughout the season enjoy live musical performances and special events, including Farmers Market Customer Appreciation Days in June and September, American Grown Flowers Week in July and National Farmers Market Week in August, plus don’t forget the live kid’s cooking class and so much more! Make the Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market a part of your Saturday morning routine and shop small, while supporting local!
