Farmers’ market to feature variety of vendors

Homemade food, fresh produce, jewelry, clothing and arts and crafts are featured at the Urbanna Farmers’ Market.
The Urbanna Farmers’ Market will be held on Saturday, September 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in “downtown” Urbanna.

“Visitors can come by land or sea,” said an Urbanna Business Association spokesperson. “Take the trolley and stop by the Urbanna Town Marina to step aboard the 65-foot schooner ‘Serenity’ with afternoon cruises from 2 to 4 p.m., or experience a sunset cruise. Make time for a game of putt-putt just outside of town. The Pearl will take you there for 25 cents!”

Market vendors will be on the parking lot of the Southside Sentinel and the lawn of the vintage Marble House, both on Virginia Street.

“Lovers Retreat is back again with its delicious varieties of goat cheese,” said the spokesperson. “See jewelry and clocks made out of recycled computer parts. Enjoy homemade baked goods, quiche and coffee, organic produce, glass designs and pooch items. Visit the Historic Christ Church display, and the Christ Church Parish and Central Middlesex Rescue Squad booths.”

There will be lots of handcrafted items including jewelry, whimsical items, crocheted and knitted baby blankets, fresh flowers, plants, fruit and vegetables.

Julie Bates from Julianne Clothing will be the featured vendor for September.  Julianne Clothing  has been a vendor at the Urbanna Farmers’ Market since  it first started over four years ago. Bates, of Heathsville, sells classic and comfortable cotton clothing with various designs that bare  a unique  trademark. Her clothing includes ladies block-print apparel displaying shells, crabs, seahorses and much more.

Tickets for the Urbanna Business Association (UBA) summer raffle will be available. The prize will be donated by Pet Castle and proceeds will benefit the UBA.
