A number of farmers markets around Richmond are open year round – from Forest Hill to the West End, Carytown to Lakeside – with precautions set up for safety. And these farmers markets are worth the trip, because 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 and many have special events for holidays.
