Urbanna Farmers Market is Saturday

The Urbanna Farmers Market will be open for its last event of the season this Saturday, October 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Taber Park.

“What a successful season we’ve had,” commented Beth Justice, chairperson of the committee. “We’ve been able to make this monthly market a huge success thanks to the continued and invaluable help of our wonderful volunteers, the generous supporters who have contributed to our advertising campaign, a variety of terrific live music, our 50-50 cash draw, and an ever-increasing number of quality vendors.”

At this, the season finale on Saturday, George Throckmorton will be providing acoustic music to enjoy as folks stroll the park. Meet local historian and author Larry Chowning, who will be available to talk about and sign the nine books he has written about our area—a perfect holiday gift.
And in true Chesapeake Bay fashion, Tolar Nolley will be representing “No Shuck HPP of Virginia,” the first high-pressure processing seafood facility on the East Coast, located in Topping. Included in his exhibit will be a special preview of signature glasses celebrating Deborah Pratt, National Oyster Shucking Champion.

And don’t forget Middlesex County’s animal shelter and “Pet Friends for Life,” who will be introducing to all in attendance one or two of their lovable and available dogs for adoption.

This last market will offer up the same quality local produce and farm products, so expect to find the freshest from Garner’s Produce plus organic meats and eggs from Tall Cotton Farm, including chicken, turkey and beef. Lovers Retreat Cheese will be offering a delicate variety of goat cheese made from the milk of the most contented local goats, and Miss Mary will have her seafood truck on site selling the freshest catches of the day.

Folks will be able to buy fresh bread, as long as it lasts, and Dreaming Tree Farms will have its ready-to-eat salads available that will change the minds of anti-salad eaters everywhere.

Popular by demand funnel cakes and amazingly good homemade pork skins will also be at the park. Top it all off with River Southern’s unique and freshly-squeezed lemonade, and you have all the makings for a perfect Saturday morning in Urbanna.
