Winter market this Saturday in Spotsylvania

With temperatures expected to hit the 60s on Saturday, it’s a great opportunity to take your food shopping outdoors.

Happily, the good weather coincides with the first of Spotsylvania’s three winter farmers markets. These markets will happen Jan. 12, Feb. 9 and March 9 (the second Saturdays of these months).

The markets take place at the usual spot–the Gordon Road commuter lot on State Route 3. They run from 9 a.m. until noon.

As usual, you can use your credit cards and SNAP benefits at these winter markets.

This week, Market Manager Elizabeth Borst reports that she’s expecting 10 to 12 vendors, with a variety of products, including pork, eggs, cheese, baked goods, jams and jellies, mushrooms, microgreens and apples.

“We will have winter vegetables, including local cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, salad greens, arugula, swiss chard, onions, turnips, greens and cut herbs,” Borst writes.

The regular Saturday market season will begin April 20, with the Wednesday market at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center re-opening May 1.
