Richmond Farmers Markets
With access to so many grocery stores and online markets, it's easy to forget that local farmers markets cultivate communities on a far greater scale than food harvested from other regions. The locally grown fruits and vegetables sold at farmers markets provide fresh, affordable and healthy food options that cater to every household budget. Many of the growers also lead seminars or demonstrations that cover everything from health-related education to learning how to cook or prepare a delicious meal. These markets also bring the community together as they support local agriculture and the local businesses that rely on it.

Join our REALTORS® by showing your support for our farming community and visiting one of these five fantastic farmers markets around the RVA.

  1. River Street Market – 30 River Street, Petersburg, VA 23803
    Now in its third season, the River Street Market near Petersburg homes for sale is continuing to grow!
