Celebrate the official first day of summer this Saturday at a place where Virginia’s summer bounty is officially on display … a local farmers market!
Midlothian residents don’t have to travel far for farm fresh food. GrowRVA’s Midlothian Mines Farmers Market sets up every Saturday afternoon May – December between 1pm and 4pm in the Millworks Development, near the corner of N. Woolridge Road and Coalfield Road. Conveniently located near the Midlothian Library and the Urban Farmhouse Market & Café, the market is an easy stop along the way. “Grab your market bag and pick up your weekly dose of Virginia grown,” says GrowRVA’s Karen Atkinson. “Shopping local not only feeds your family fresh, nutritious food but it also supports our local farmers and their families which in turn strengthens our local economy.”
In its third season, the market is anchored by full time vendors Walnut Hill Produce, Real Country Sausage, Barham Seafood, Wandering Cow Farm, Red Lintu, C Glass Creations and the GrowRVA Farm Stand.
Adding to the interest each week is a rotating group of part time vendors including Mrs Yoder’s Kitchen, Gelati Celesti Ice Cream, A Wonderful Soap, Sirius Jewelry, Balm of the Earth, Poor Georgies Bake Shoppe and Cup Cakery, Belinda Early Jewelry, One Rare Lily, Sweet Temptations by Teresa, Whispering Winds Farm and others.
