About the Market

The Town of Dumfries is excited to host a brand new Saturday farmers market, from 9 am until 2 pm, starting April 22, 2023  running weekly through September 3, 2023  at 17749 Main Street.  In future years, the market season will run from April through the last Saturday before Thanksgiving.  We look forward to bringing together the best local growers and artisans around to offer the Dumfries Community access to the freshest locally grown at affordable prices!  Dumfries Farmers Market is strictly producer-only, meaning that all farmers and food artisans must grow or make from scratch everything they bring to market.  We plan to start with a wonderful assortment of fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, baked goods, ready-to-eat foods, and more.  As the market grows, so will the number of participating vendors.  We look forward to seeing you out at the market!

Well-behaved dogs are welcome at the market!  Please closely monitor your pet.  Pets deemed disruptive to the market, may be asked to leave the market space at the discretion of market management.

Disruptive behaviors include:
  • Barking, lunging, or otherwise acting aggressively towards people or other dogs
  • Jumping up onto people or vendor displays
  • Behaving in a way that is unsanitary or unsafe for a market setting
Making Local Food Affordable for Everyone

To make fresh local food more affordable, the Town of Dumfries will be accepting SNAP/EBT benefits and will offer a dollar-for-dollar match while funding is available.  To learn more about the Virginia Fresh Match program, check out the Virginia Fresh Match Website

We hope to see you out at the market!  If you have any questions about how the program works, please reach out to events@dumfriesva.gov, call 703-221-3400, or stop by the market information booth on Saturday mornings during the market season.
