Annual and Seasonal Events

Annual and seasonal events occur once a year or for a seasonal timeframe. For example, the Farmers Market runs each year from May to September.

  1. Farmers Market

Chesterfield County Farmers Market

Virginia farmers markets are an important resource for communities to provide access to local fresh produce, food, horticultural goods and hygiene products. You also support local businesses by shopping at a farmers market.

2022 Season
The Chesterfield County Farmers Market will be held on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning May 11 to and ending Sept. 28. For more information, view the county calendar and visit the Chesterfield County Farmers Market Facebook for weekly updates and vendor lists.

If you are a vendor or local producer, please email farmersmarket@chesterfield.gov for more information.

Location
6707 Mimms Loop, Chesterfield, VA 23832

Shopping Farmers Markets Benefits
Shop local because farmers markets:

  • Have better taste and nutrition: Products are grown locally and picked at the peak of the season, making nutrients more abundant.
  • Give opportunities to meet your farmers: The same people who grow the food sell their products and have a wealth of knowledge to share.
  • Support local business: When you shop at local farmers markets, you’re keeping money in your own community going directly to the farmer.
