market view

The Independence Farmers Market began in 2009. A local grower/producer market, the Independence Farmer’s Market is open seasonally on Fridays 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. featuring local, naturally raised meats, local and heirloom vegetables, baked goods, herbs, arts and crafts. Throughout the season, our vendors provide customers with goods grown or made with pride. Ask them for recipes or helpful food preparation tips. Our market offers special events throughout the market season, featuring Farm Fresh Kids Day, the Berry Festival  and Tomato Day, contests, raffles and local musicians. During the offseason we open our online market and hold winter workshops to encourage and educate new farmers and customers on farmer’s market goods and services. Stop by and see us at the crossroads of Hwy 58 and 21 in historic Independence, Virginia.
