Tappahannock Farmers’ Market Returns 


Tappahannock, VA, February 12, 2016 –  A Tappahannock tradition returns!  Celebrate spring with the opening of the 7th season of the Tappahannock Farmers’ Market on Saturday, April 16th from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  The Market season is the 3rd Saturday - April through November except June during the annual Tappahannock RivahFest!


Where else can you get fresh vegetables, fruits, cheeses, seafood, meat, poultry, eggs, breads, and snacks, even flowers, all at one place, while listening to music and chatting with friends?


The Market has a diverse mix of produce vendors and food ranging from fresh breads, cakes and pies to kettle corn to beef and sausages.  A large number of crafters, artists and jewelry makers are in good company with one or two wineries offering samples at each Market.  Live music is at every Market.  Special monthly theme events are usually very entertaining (sometimes for unintended reasons – dogs and children don’t always cooperate as rehearsed or intended!).


Vendors from the 2015 Season have first priority for 2016 applications and Thank You! to those that already have registered.  Season subscribers or vendors interested in one or more market dates can continue to use the on-line application and payment options at or register by calling 804-445-2067.


The Tappahannock Farmers’ Markets receives generous support of local businesses and continues to explore ways to make Tappahannock a more vibrant community.  If you have suggestions for new products, new vendors or community improvements, please email 


Please remember the market continues to be a successful event because of your local community support.  Please let the market vendors know how much you appreciate their presence in Tappahannock every month!  As in all free market business ventures, they will continue to come back if your shopping makes it worth their while.  Thank you to our customers and vendors for your support!



The Market is a Tappahannock Main Street Program (TMSP) initiative.  TMSP is an advocate for the revitalization of the historic downtown area.  The Market is held on the third Saturday of every month from April through November, except June during the annual Tappahannock RivahFest!
