Fabulous! Selection is better on Saturdays but Wednesday has plenty to offer. Farmers are helpful, knowledgeable and tolerant of curious children. Prices are comparable to the supermarket sales but the product is superior. Some are organic but with the farmer right there, questions about pesticides are easily resolved. Our family looks forward to the market opening every year!
I hear the Chesapeake markets are great, but I want to correct the misconception created by another reviewer: not all the other markets in the region are resale markets! The Portsmouth Olde Towne Farmers' Market is proud of its direct-from-the-farmer sales. We allow cooperative agreements between farmers but only allow resales of special Virginia grown/produced items, like Caromont cheese. Many of our farmers also sell at other markets in the region during the week.

Love it. Everything is home grown and fresh, unlike other farmers markets in the area where they buy the fruits and veggies from the store and then resell it. It is convenient to get to, and the sellers and very nice and friendly and always give great deals. This is my favorite on in the area by far.
