The Saturday morning Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market has been a staple within the community since the 50s. “We are so thankful for the opportunity to continue to provide fresh, local products to the community of people who have grown to love and support the Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market. I know that I can speak for all vendors in saying how thankful we all are for our customers dedicated support over the years.” says CRI Farmers Market Chairperson Evan Boone of Three Springs Farm.
The Culpeper Downtown Farmers Market will open with 30 vendors this season offering a wide array of products. Stroll through the market for locally grown fruit, vegetables, herbs, and vibrant flowers. Taste the very best farm fresh eggs, delicious baked goods, locally raised beef, pork, lamb, and much more.

That means if you swipe your EBT card for $12 of tokens, you will receive $24 of tokens to use at the market. This program kicks off at the May 7th season opening of the Farmers Market and will last until the matching funds are exhausted. Tish Smyth, Culpeper Renaissance Inc.
