Grandin Village Community Market

Grandim Market

The Grandin Village Community Market  is open every Saturday from 8:00am-noon from April 25-October 31 for the 2015 season.

The Grandin Village Community Market supports local, sustainable agriculture by connecting the public with local farmers and food producers. The Grandin Village Market accepts and doubles SNAP-EBT benefits.

Currently the Grandin Village Community Market is comprised of 19 farmers and food producers featuring certified and non-certified organic veggies, fruit, herbs, seasonal seedlings, cheese, pasture raised/grass-fed chicken, beef, pork, and lamb, regional seafood,  locally roasted coffee, artisan homemade breads, muffins, baked goods, hot-prepared foods, and fresh-cut flowers.

All of our markets feature 100% locally produced products with an emphasis on organic, sustainable, and humane producers, products, and practices. All products sold at our markets are produced within 100 miles of our market locations.  We make two exceptions to this rule:  we allow regional seafood from Virginia and North Carolina waters (only if the vendor is local) and coffee (only if the roaster is local).
