Celebrate National Farmers Market Week, August 6 – 12, 2023

Virginia is for Farmers Market Lovers — ALL farmers market lovers!

During National Farmers Market Week this year, we are highlighting how access to fresh, nutritious food has expanded thanks to the Farm Market Fresh program, Virginia Fresh Match and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) at markets.

On our map, customers can search for markets by program. Our map now shows that Virginia has 265 farmers markets:

  • 150 markets participate in the federal Senior and WIC Farmers Market Nutrition Program (Farm Market Fresh)
  • 122 markets accept SNAP payments from consumers
  • 74 markets accept Virginia Fresh Match

It also lists the produce farms authorized to accept Farm Market Fresh. There are now 270 approved farms. That’s 96 new farms added this year!

Let us know what you’re planning for National Farmers Market Week!
