All of our farmers markets feature 100% locally-produced products with an emphasis on organic, sustainable, and humane producers, products, and practices. All products sold at our markets are produced within 100 miles of our market locations (with two exceptions: we allow locally-roasted coffee, and regional seafood from Virginia and North Carolina waters, only if the vendor is local). Check out the more than 20 amazing vendors who sell at our markets.

All of our markets have great Healthy Food Incentive Programs including our SNAP Double Value program— we accept and double SNAP-EBT benefits (food stamps) up to $30.
