Find Us at the Farmers' Markets

Find Us at the Farmers' Markets

The library staff often journeys into the community to share our many wonderful educational, cultural, and recreational resources. From May through October you will find us at area farmers' markets. Stop by to learn about our great services while your children complete a quick and fun STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activity. You can even check out a cookbook full of tasty recipes to use with the fresh produce you just purchased!   

Farmers Market Cookbook by Southern Living

Farmers Market Cookbook by Southern Living

Southern Living’s Farmers Market Cookbook has interesting, beautiful recipes that are not difficult for an ordinary cook to produce. This is to be expected as it is typical of anything from Southern Living’s magazines and cookbook lines. But what is different here is the book’s focus on vegetables, fruits, cheeses, and other foods that are available seasonally at local farmers markets.

Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania Farmer's Markets, 9am-noon

If you're at the Fredericksburg or Spotsylvania Farmer's Market this Saturday, May 5, stop by and say "hi!" to a librarian. We'll have fun activities for the kids and cookbooks for you! We'll be at both markets the first Saturday of each month through August.

England Run “Library Blossoms” Plant Sale, 9am-noon

The second annual Friends of the Library plant sale featuring hanging plants from local grower, Dominion Growers.  These plants were gorgeous last year, value-priced, and sold out in 2 hours.  This is your chance to pick up a Mother’s Day gift or create an instant decorative garden.

We hope to see you out and about this Saturday! Check out more Cultivating Community events here like our upcoming film series.
