Get to the Farmer’s Market in Fredericksburg this Summer

Fredericksburg Farmer's Market

The original Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market is located at Hurkamp Park in historic downtown. It’s part of a long-standing tradition of local merchants getting together to sell their wares on the street, and local consumers coming to browse the arts and home-grown foods. This open-air commerce dates back earlier than the city’s foundation in 1728! Although this trade has been going on for so long, only in the last quarter century has the Farmer’s Market been organized at Hurkamp Park. However, The new and improved Fredericksburg Farmer’s Market has three locations for your shopping convenience!
