Market Manager: Kirsten Miller
As the 2023 WF&AM season has come to an end, we would like to thank our hardworking farmers and dedicated artisan market vendors who have made the season an outstanding success. Thank you for nourishing our community, supporting local businesses and bringing joy to Downtown Wilson. We had a great time hosting our weekly market running from April to September every Saturday from 8am to noon. We hope everyone enjoyed the unique shopping experience and the sense of community that the market provided.
The WF&AM season is every Saturday from 8am-12pm, April through September. The market offers a central, convenient and joint open-air venue for local farmers and artisan, artists, and craftsman to vend homegrown produce, freshly baked breads and pastries, local meats, honey, eggs, seedlings and flowers, soaps, jewelry, pottery, and much more! Other features include food trucks and non-profit partner booths and activities.
Located under The Pavilion in the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park, the seasonal market offers a large, multi-purpose shelter which shades both the vendors and customers. The structure is designed with a roof line emulating the historic tobacco warehouse which once sat on the park site. Adjacent to the Pavilion are welcoming picnic tables where visitors may enjoy their tasty treats purchased from the wide array of farmer’s offerings and food trucks. In addition, a grassy green for lounging and games, a stage for special musical or performance guests, and beautiful landscaping create a multifaceted experience which is convenient and appealing for employees seeking a work day break, family and group outings, and visitors traveling to experience the 30 massive colorful, kinetic works of Vollis Simpson. The market provides an opportunity for out-of-town visitors to take a piece of Wilson back home with them.
