Farmers markets in this country are growing. New ones are springing up all over Virginia. These community markets are morphing into more than just places to buy fresh local produce. They’re becoming places to hang out, eat, drink, shop, and more.
Ten years ago, there were around 80 farmers markets operating in all of Virginia. Today it’s 3 times that.
“Now we’ve got between 200 and 250. I say between 5: because the numbers keep changing, new markets are coming on.”
