Market News
Richmond Farmers Market will be on Volunteers Green on Fridays through October 16 - check out the bounty!

This is your last chance to fill your pantry from your neighbor farmers – winter squashes, potatoes, cabbages, canned goods. PLUS all the fresh eating goodies they still have lettuce, summer squash, tomatoes and more.

Fresh, local food – good for you, good for the community, good for the environment——

Come celebrate local food with us at the Richmond Farmers Market. Let your local farmers know you appreciate their hard work.

At Richmond Farmers Market we focus on strengthening the direct connection between consumers and agricultural producers by creating a market for the folks who keep our local food system strong. If we want access to fresh local food, we need to support the folks who make it happen.

Our vendors make it easy for you to create wonderful meals by bringing fresh, healthy ingredients like: eggs, bread, cheese, syrup, honey, fruits and veggies, chicken, beef, sausage, jams, pickles, chutneys, and more to fill out your menus!

Each month we set aside a booth for youth with an entrepreneurial flair to sell items that they have either made, baked or grown. Fill out an application and request the Youth Booth.
