The 2021 WF&AM season will kick off  April 24 and run every Saturday, 8 am – 12 noon, through September 4. This season will be set up as a traditional market underneath the pavilion at the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park. There will not be a drive-through option this season. 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. 

Imagination Station Science and History Museum will be the first non-profit partnership on April 24th with a surprise. Pig pickin’, anyone?

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.
