Farmers markets are open – from Ashland to Goochland, Carytown to Lakeside – with precautions set up for safety. There’s just something about local produce that makes it look and taste better. And when you buy it straight from the person who grew it outside in the fresh air, you know it’s as fresh as possible and that it was grown responsibly. You’ll find that many local markets carry organic produce and meats.

Tuesdays: Birdhouse and Goochland
Wednesdays: Urban Farmhouse in Midlothian, Powhatan Village Farmers Market
