Front Royal Farmers’ Market opens Saturday

Front Royal Farmers’ Market kicks off its ninth year on Saturday. There will be live music and 16 to 20 vendors, said market director Tony Tringale.

“We have several produce vendors, some arts and crafts, home-baked goods, including sugar- and gluten-free stuff,” said Tringale. “We have an embroiderer, stained glass, locally grown farm fresh produce, dairy, meat, plants, music and more, which is kind of our motto.”

The market is opened from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday from May to October. Tringale said that the market will only be closed for the Festival of Leaves on the second Saturday in October and the Wine and Craft Festival at the end of May.

Also, the market will feature cooking demonstrations every two weeks beginning June 11.

“The Warren Coalition got a grant on behalf of the farmers market,” said Tringale. “Every two weeks, we’re going to take a product from the market and show how to cook it. The kids we’re supporting will get a voucher for any food to take home and cook – we’re trying to teach them how to eat healthy.”

The market will also feature live, local music acts at 11 a.m. every Saturday. For opening day this Saturday, there will be live music every hour.

“They are all live, local musicians,” said Tringale. “We’re promoting the local musicians in the community as well.”
