After a 20-year break, Montross Market Days are back

Montross Market Days, held the first Saturday of every month from May through September, are back after a 20-year intermission. Discontinued in the 1990s, the Greater Montross Partnership for Revitalization has revived the popular spring and summer event.
Visitors and vendors crowded into the Westmoreland County Courthouse Square Saturday for the kick-off of the revival, which organizers hope will again become a regular display of area produce, baked goods, plants, crafts, collectibles and antiques.

“It will be an important part of the economic revitalization of the town,” said Montross Town Manager Brenda Reamy. “It has been started at the perfect time to coincide with the revitalization efforts of the town. It is great to see this newly organized group bring back the memorable Montross Market Days.”

At the first of this summer’s Market Days, several hundred Montross residents and visitors spent time at vendor booths operated by Lois’ Produce, Sho Nuff Bar-B-Q, Big Billy’s Duck Calls, Lover’s Retreat Dairy, Westmoreland Produce and J and J Green House, among others.

“It gets us out there,” said Wayne Jones of J and J, which had plants and flowers for spring gardening available. Bill Rice, of Big Billy’s, was offering duck calls, goose calls, art carvings and paintings. “Market Days is a way we can let people know what we do,” he said.

One vendor, who was almost as enthusiastic as the Market Days visitors, was young Grace Minor of Montross. Grace, 11, was selling fresh strawberries at the stand operated by her grandmother, Lois, of Lois’ Produce.

“Strawberries are very good for you,” she said, as she sold small baskets of the plump red berries to customers. “She’s been doing this a long time,” said her grandmother, Lois Allensworth. “She’s a cutie. We think the world of Gracie.”
