Pick Up Fresh Produce at This Farmers Market in Richmond

Support Local Vendors at This Farmers Market in Richmond

For centuries, residents of towns and villages have shopped at local street markets for fresh vegetables. Even though we have so many stores around Richmond, nothing beats the freshness of a farmer's market. When you're meal planning on the weekend, head to the Pecan Grove Farmers and Artisan Market. It's right by our apartments in Richmond and offers more than vegetables.

Fun Activities

Every week, you're in for different events and activities at the market. There might be pony rides, arts and crafts opportunities, or fun seasonal events like spring egg hunts or holiday concerts. Your best bet is to follow their social media accounts so you know what's on the schedule.

Food and Drink

In addition to great activities, you'll delight in all the food and drink offerings. Different local food trucks set up shop at the market. It could be spicy Mexican food, hearty empanadas, breakfast options, and so much more. Recently, Cousins Maine Lobster served lobster rolls, lobster quesadillas, and other mouthwatering treats. Munch on your food as you browse the market or grab something to enjoy back home.

Groceries and Gifts

From baked goods and vegetables to local artisans, the Pecan Grove Farmers and Artisan Market has a little of everything. For dinner, enjoy some oven-roasted chicken, slow-cooked BBQ style when you find some finger-licking barbecue sauce made fresh by a local farm. There are also things like spice blends, artisan infused olive oils, or jams and honey. Of course, you'll find tons of fresh greens.

While you're there, pick up a gift for yourself or a friend. Choose from home decor, apparel, or artisan sandals. Add some fresh bread or tasty chocolates to your shopping basket as well. 

For more great food after the farmers market, visit local diners around our Richmond apartments. They serve classic breakfast fare just about all day long. For a great place to make your next home, contact us. Our staff will schedule an informative tour of Olympus at Waterside Estates.
