If you like peanuts this is your place in Market Square. Yes it is a bit over priced but what a selection they have! They provide tasting samples and also have some gift items. If you are a peanut fan, just go!

This is a great store, also selling candy. They do so many varieties of Virginian peanuts, and you can sample all of them first if you wish. I purchased some salted nuts, as well as some hot jalapeno nuts which are delicious. Staff were pleasant...More

This has become a regular stop when we visit Williamsburg. We especially appreciate that they offer samples in most of their flavors so we can try them. We stock up on our favorites for ourselves and to give as gifts.

My husband couldn’t find a flavor he didn’t like! You can try every flavor before purchasing. The prices were less than you would expect too! The woman working was cheerful and chatty. Great little place!

I just did a peanut run and bought some favorites. Of course the reason this store is popular is the samples. You can taste many of the varieties of Virginia peanuts. Dark chocolate covered everything...yum. They have other merchandise also as well as cold drinks.

If you can think of a type of peanut, they've got it. And they are all delicious! As a local, I will definitely be back.
