Montross Market Days are back on the Courthouse Green

The First Saturday Montross Market Days returned to Westmoreland County Saturday, following a Friday evening Artwalk, and visitors and vendors crowded onto the Courthouse Green to buy and sell an impressive display of area produce, baked goods, plants, crafts, collectibles and antiques.

“I wish someone had perched a time-lapse camera atop the Carrot Cottage all weekend! It would have captured a lively village Artwalk on Friday evening, Market Days on Saturday morning and a Courthouse Green wedding on Saturday afternoon,” said Becky Nelson, the coordinator of the event.

“The weekend was truly a foreshadowing of things to come in Montross,” Nelson said. “The market’s three produce vendors displayed beautiful early spring fruits, vegetables and herbs – a true testament to the grace of God and farmers’ tenacity!”

“The market was lively with music, art, farm-fresh eggs and cheese, produce and flowers, as well as representatives of parks, churches, and master gardeners.  Once again, it was a ‘feel-good’ day in a beautiful setting, the Town of Montross, which is ready to come alive,” Nelson said.

Discontinued in the 1990s, but revived in 2013 by the Greater Montross Partnership for Revitalization, the First Saturday Market Days have become a combination flea market, block party and high school reunion under Nelson’s guidance.

Despite the 20-year absence until last year, the event, which is held on the first Saturday of every month from May through September, has become a lively affair for residents, tourists and vendors. “It’s magic,” said Nelson.

Among the vendors displaying wares for the crowds Saturday were Sho ‘Nuff BBQ, Travis Gibson’s Farm Fresh Eggs, Jewel Hudson Pottery, Popes Creek Baptist Church, Friends of Westmoreland State Park, Relay for Life and the ever-popular Lois’ Produce.

Also displaying their products were the Westmoreland Berry Farm, Westmoreland Produce, Lovers Retreat Farm, Floyd Lane and Homeward Bound, Northern Neck Master Gardeners, Jimmy Ginn’s Band (55 and Alive) and the Montross Partnership for Revitalization.
