The Purcellville Farmers Market – which had recently been rebranded as the Western Loudoun Farmers Market – will not reopen this year after a brief winter hiatus, according to a post on social media.
Kelley Partlow, who has been the coordinator of the market for many years, posted that the decision was difficult, and it was due to a lack of vendor interest.
“We will miss our family of vendors, guests and four-legged friends,” she said.
The market has recently been based at the town-owned Bush Tabernacle property after relocating from its Main Street space.
Lovettsville resident Christy Hendrickson, who has been a vendor at the market selling CRYO Candy, told the Times-Mirror that she was surprised by the news and saddened by the loss of the local market.
Others posted that they were sad to hear the news and they hope to find a way to keep it going.
The Times-Mirror reached out to town council members and the town manager for a reaction but has not yet received a response.
