Are you looking for a way to spend your Saturday, or perhaps a Wednesday evening after work? Going to the grocery store can be less than exciting, but browsing local farmers markets puts a spin on shopping! There are many local farmers markets in Charlottesville that fall on different days of the week. Easily find one that’s best for your schedule. Whether you need to do a quick stop for some veggies or have a free Saturday morning to explore, there are plenty of options!

Not only will shopping at farmers markets give you fresh locally grown products, but it will also give back to the community. Through buying local, you’re giving back to local farmers, which stimulates the economy! Additionally, buying local is good for the environment.
