Local Farmer's Markets and Pick-Your-Own

Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford, VA

By Jenny Sites April 19, 2021



It's almost farmers market and pick-your-own time in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford!

We love supporting our local farmers and buying locally-grown produce and goods. Plus, it's fun for the whole family to visit a pick-your-own (PYO) farm or a farmers market in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford.

Here are four things to note before heading out to farmers markets or PYO farms in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford:

  • Pick-your-own farms can sometimes change hours on short notice depending on weather, produce availability, and other factors. It's best to call ahead to make sure pick-your-own is available that day. Prices can also change from day to day.
  • Bring your own containers or bags to avoid any extra charges! 
  • Bring cash as some Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford farmer market stands and pick-your-own farms don't take credit cards.
  • Some farmer markets and pick-your-own farms in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford might have rules or requests in place due to COVID. Please check their websites or social media sites before heading out!
