Fruit & Vegetable Growers
Connecting Farms and People - Buy Fresh, Buy Local.

Hampton Roads encourages consumers to purchase locally grown and produced foods and products. By eating locally, you’re saving small family farms, supporting the local economy, keeping our community healthy, and preserving the environment. Use this food guide to find the markets, farms, watermen and restaurants that offer the freshest, most delicious local and seasonal products.

The power in buying locally comes from being able to ask your farmer questions that are important to you. We offer a few suggestions on things to ask or look for.  

Questions to ask your farmer:
• Did you grow this product yourself or was it purchased from another farm?
• What are your growing methods?
• What are your animals fed? Are they free range and/or pasture raised?
• Do you have any recipes or recommendations for this product?
• How long ago was this product picked? Is it ready to eat?  What’s the best way to store or preserve it?

Farms and Markets are often seasonal. Call or check websites for open dates.
