Downtown Orange Holiday Village and Makers Market

Saturday December 1, 10am - 3pm

On Saturday, December 1, 2018, from 10 am to 3 pm, downtown Orange will become an old-fashioned village filled with live holiday music, downtown merchant open houses, a maker’s market, seasonal foods, local theater, children’s activities, and Santa!

There will be plenty of free parking within easy walking from all the activities. Our Downtown Holiday Village has been coordinated with all-day Saturday events including local church bazaars, Grelen’s Holiday Enchanted Extravaganza, and James Madison’s Montpelier Open House.

Plan on spending a wonderful Saturday or even the whole weekend in downtown Orange.

Mineral Farmers Market   Done for the 2018 Season - See you next year!!

Saturdays, May - Oct.  8am - 1pm 

You can find me here on any Saturday that I don't have another event scheduled.

The Mineral Farmer's Market opened May 30, 2009 with ten vendors. We now have as many as thirty vendors each week, and are proud to offer locally, Virginia grown produce as well as talented local crafters. Our community has embraced the Market as a place to "see and be seen" on Saturdays in Mineral. We are having a fabulous time at the Market, and our local businesses are finally feeling the positive impact of a local weekly attraction. We maintain a positive attitude, are non-partisan and non-political. We are pleased to support local civic groups and churches in their fundraising efforts, so long as the goods being offered are within our guidelines.
