Farmer's Market & Pick-Your-Own Guide for Richmond

Buy local!

May 3, 2021

It's  farmers market and pick-your-own time in Richmond!

We love supporting our local farmers and buying locally-grown produce and goods. Plus, it's fun for the whole family to visit a pick-your-own (PYO) farm or a farmers market in Richmond.

Here are four things to note before heading out to farmers markets or PYO farms in Richmond:

  • Pick-your-own farms can sometimes change hours on short notice dependent on weather, produce availability, and other factors. It's best to call ahead to make sure pick-your-own is available that day. Prices can also change from day to day.
  • Bring your own containers or bags to avoid any extra charges! 
  • Bring cash as some  Richmond farmer market stands and pick-your-own farms don't take credit cards.
  • Some farmer markets and pick-your-own farms in RVA might have rules or requests in place due to COVID. Please check their websites or social media sites before heading out!

Here are the details on Richmond farmers markets and pick-your-own farms:
