T’is the season, and this weekend marks the final shopping day of the year at the South of the James Farmers Market at Forest Hill Park.
But there’s no need to worry about stretching the leftover Christmas goose till spring, the SOJ Market isn’t going away. Instead, SOJ will jingle all the way up Semmes Avenue to the Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts (3411 Semmes Ave, Richmond VA 23225) for the South of the James Winter Market.
From Dec. 10 through April 28, 10 a.m. to noon, the SOJ Winter Market brings its European-style farmers market to the grounds of Virginia’s first elementary charter school, again offering a wide selection of produce, locally produced artisan meats, cheeses, wines and prepared foods, as well as a broad selection of Virginia artists and artisans.
In the tradition of our producer-only South of the James Market, the SOJ Winter Market also gives shoppers peace of mind of knowing that the food they buy and eat comes straight from the source.
