Farmer's Markets in Richmond, VA

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Commonwealth

Everyone loves a farmers market. If it's fresh from the farm produce you want(and who doesn't), then farmer's markets are your thing. Studies have shown that produce bought at supermarkets travel on average 1500 miles. Surprisingly, organic food bought at supermarkets tend to travel even further.


Buying your produce at farmer's markets has several advantages

- Farmers get to keep more of the money they make by selling directly to consumers and bypassing large industrial food companies

-You know where the food comes from you buy

-It's more GREEN. Food bought in supermarkets has to be shipped all around the country using tons of fuel and resources in the process.

-Buying locally supports LOCAL businesses

-Farmer's markets are a wonderful place to take the family with all the sites, smells and colors.

Farners Markets are huge here in Northern Virginia with producers coming in from Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia. It's our #1 stop on Saturday mornings.
