Hanover’s Perspective

Produce Stands, Farms & Open Air Markets are Stocked with Seasonal Offerings in Hanover County

Farmers’ markets are a critical ingredient to Virginia’s agriculture economy connecting rural to urban, enhancing local food systems, and supporting healthy communities.  In addition to providing locally grown fruits and vegetables, nutritious protein options, and other locally produced food items, markets showcase the sights, sounds, and uniqueness of a locality and foster a sense of community among their customers.

With more than 280 farmers’ markets in the Commonwealth of Virginia, there are many opportunities to shop locally for a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. Throughout the growing season, consumers can expect to find green beans, berries, tomatoes, sweet corn, peaches, peppers, potatoes, eggplants, onions, carrots and more. Click here to view a chart of produce items that are in season now and available at your local market. In addition, many farmers’ markets in the state also have fresh Virginia Grown meats such as chicken, pork, seafood, and more.

The number of farmers’ markets and roadside stands in Virginia has grown dramatically in recent years, mostly in response to consumer demand for fresh, locally-grown agricultural products and the desire for people to connect with where their food comes from,” said Kim Hutchinson, Executive Director, Virginia Farmers Market Association. “In addition to fresh produce and other agricultural products, farmers’ markets have become a central site for community engagement through entertainment, festivals, antique shows, plant sales, and other events.”

Consumers are encouraged to search for a local market at or at, and should call ahead to learn about the market’s current offerings and hours of operation.
