TFM Logo Our public surveys have identified a Farmers’ Market as one of the top requested services that the Tappahannock Main Street Program could help to provide. We believe the Farmers’ Market will provide an important gathering of the community and fulfill a mandate to create events that encourage consumers and investors to live, work, shop in and enjoy our traditional historic district. These events will improve consumer and investor confidence in the town and offer an opportunity to highlight unique charm of Tappahannock and forge a positive image in the region.

The Tappahannock Main Street Program, the Town of Tappahannock and Essex County have planned a series of monthly Farmers’ Markets to be located in historic downtown Tappahannock. The markets will be held from 9-1 pm on the third Saturday of each month starting April and running through November.

The Markets feature: vegetables and fruits; meats, cheese and seafood; bread and baked goods; garden plants, flowers and accessories; home made crafts and fine arts; local wineries wine tasting area; and an assortment of restaurant and food vendors, as well as, music by local performers and featured guest artists.

Started in 2010, the Markets are located on Cross Street, on Fountain Green, and have expanded into the Courthouse Green, in historic downtown Tappahannock. The dates this year, please check the calendar on the web site.
