Come out and Support Your Local Farmers!
The Abingdon Farmers Market is now in its regular season. The market will be open every Tuesday from 3pm – 6pm and every Saturday from 8am – 1pm until Thanksgiving. The market is located on the corner of Remsburg Dr. and Cummings Street in Abingdon, VA. Throughout the season there will be a variety of events taking place. Everything from a Berry Festival to a Squashtober festival will be on the agenda for the Abingdon Farmers Market this season. There will also be over 50 vendors from local farms and artisans set up to sell their goods and to promote fresh local food throughout the community each week. Make sure to check back on the website so you don’t miss out on any Music at the Market Performers or Chef Demonstrations to come this season!!!
September 26th We Will be Holding Our Annual Squashtober Festival
The Abingdon Farmers Market will hold their annual “Squashtober Fest” on Saturday, October 26th, from 9am-12pm. A pumpkin weighing contest will take place, where Mayor Ed Morgan will announce the winner. He will be delivering the cash prize ($1 per pound, up to 1,000 pounds) for the heaviest pumpkin at the festival. The winners will be announced at 11am.
Those who don’t feel their pumpkins would win the weight contest can also compete in 2 other categories: “Prettiest Pumpkin,” or “Most Unique Pumpkin.” The prizes will be $100 each for the “Prettiest” & “Unique.”
On the lawn during the festival there will be local food demos, children’s activities and pumpkin painting. The event is free to attend and open to all ages.
We would love for you to come celebrate the beginning of Fall with your community. This is a great time for getting outside and enjoying all of the wonderful events Abingdon Virginia has to offer.
