Starting April 24, the Purcellville Farmers Market will have a new home.
In an effort to promote the Purcellville Farmers Market as a year-round destination for residents and visitors, organizers of the market have signed a one-year lease with the Town of Purcellville to utilize space in the parking lot by Bush Tabernacle roller rink and event venue on the South 20th Street side of the building.
The market had been located at the Shoppes at Main and Maple, however, market manager Kelley Partlow said the area at Bush Tabernacle will allow for more vendors and live music which will add to the ambiance and experience at the market.
“We are hoping for more walking traffic and hope people will come and enjoy the experience as an outing in town,” she said.
Partlow said they have been discussing the idea with market members for about two years. This seemed like a good time to move the approximately 15 vendors to kick off the spring and summer months, she said.
“In order to grow, we had to move and we are excited about it. I think it's a good move,” Partlow said.
According to the market's website, current vendors include: Cannabreeze Hemp, Harmonia Body & Home, C. Hess Orchard and Produce, Sugarcoated Bakery, Fleur de Leah, Quail & Hound Farm, Liberty Hill Farm, Fellow Fungi, Silcott Springs Farm, Scarpinato Arts and Bakery, Dollhouse Bakery and Rivas Salsa de Mexico.
Customers have the option of pre-ordering items on the market's Facebook page, PFM Pickup. The market will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting April 24.
