The 17th Street Farmers' Market, located in the heart of Richmond's Historic River District is currently under construction and will re-open in June of 2017 as a producer's market showcasing area growers' and bakers' organic and conventional fresh fruit, vegetables, breads and muffins. Our farmers market hours of operation are Thursdays from 3-6:30pm. The 17th St Farmers Market is also a vibrant community space offering banner events such as Earth Day, Richmond Bacon Festival, RVA BrewBQ, Shockoe On-A-Half-Shell Oyster Festival, Kickin' Chicken WingFest, Brunswick Stew & Stout and Richmond Cider Celebration.

The uniqueness and distinction of the 17th Street Market reaches back to the earliest days of the Commonwealth and our City. The native Powhatan peoples met to trade in the immediate vicinity of the Market at Shockoe Rock, a large rock at the confluence of Shockoe Creek and the James River. The Market continued as a major trade center and its current location served as the City's official farmers market starting in 1736 making it the oldest continuously operational farmers market in Virginia, and quite possibly the United States.

I can go to this at work. Also Patties Paradise Kiwi Spread and Buffalo Sticks are great.

I support the 17th Street Farmers' Market because I have memories from childhood of my parents buying fresh produce from the farmer's market and I am keeping that tradition strong.... [more]

Conveniently located, great vegetables and fruits. I love the friendliness of the vendors.
