As spring rolls around the corner, Prince William County is gaining another farmers’ market option. It will be held at 7 County Complex Court in Woodbridge.
The Prince William Farmers Market will be organized from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. every Thursday, starting April 7. Running until November 17, it will feature many of the same organizations that participate in the Dale City Farmers Market.
The Prince William County Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism runs the farmers’ market in Dale City, which was established in 1987 and provides a local alternative to grocery stores.
It has a winter schedule with over 20 participants each week, starting at 10 a.m. and running until 1 p.m. on Sundays. The winter schedule is from December 4 until March 26. The following week will start the spring, summer, and fall schedule moving back to the longer hours.
Due to extended hours, the spring and summer seasons for Dale City’s farmers’ market are the most popular time. It’s open between 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. , with over 50 organizations participating each week.
Both of the farmers’ markets have the advantage of being producer-only, making sure all products are grown or created by the seller.
More information can be found at the Prince William County website, along with directions to find both farmers’ markets.
