The Charlottesville City Market is a wonderful place that many people come to buy fresh local produce, homemade foods, fresh roasted coffee, made on the spot doughnuts and much more. It is a lovely place that makes me happy just to be there and experience the market

I think it has wonderful produce, baked goods, and crafts with friendly folk who sell and buy. It is a vibrant community builder, with an upbeat energy that is very supportive of buying fresh and buying local. The folks that run it are awesome too!

This market has been around for over 25 years and is an absolutely wonderful mix of the best local produce, baked goods, on-the-spot delicious food and beautiful work of local artists and artisans that you can find in Central Virginia.The City Market features over 100 vendors and is managed by the Charlottesville City Dept. of Parks and Recreation which lends the use of land, support and staff services which makes this local treasure a pleasure for all who visit. The City Market runs from the first Saturday in April until the last Saturday before Christmas thus blending the traditional Farmers Market with the Holiday Market."Locally Grown and Locally Made" is the theme for the Market and it's success is based on the large volume of people who attend and the gross sales each year. More importantly, it is a public space which brings together people from all walks of life to enjoy the many fruits of people's labor. It is a weekly gathering place where personal relationships are made between the vendors and members of the public and a sense of community amidst a troubled world is established. The Charlottesville City Market remains a place where people can come together and find some common ground, plus do their grocery shopping, eat delicious food and buy a handmade gift for a friend. It does not get much better than this.

Fresh, local, organic food; free samples from l'etoile, goat cheese, food education, friendly folks, music, so many things! I even love the balloon guy! It's the best way to start a Saturday in Charlottesville.

Because it offers a forum for local farmers to earn a living, and because of the quality and variety of offerings they bring to our community.

Great local farmers, bakers and crafts. The vegatable garden advise and plants I get there has helped me develop a greener thumb, not to mention finally grow eggplant.

I love to eat local. In charlottesville, I can do that 2 times a week at the City market and the Meade Market. It's perfect for fresh produce and seeing what the local artisans are creating!

I love all the vendors and the variety of foods, jewlery, pottery, flowers/plants and the wonderful music that surrounds this healthy space. I meet and greet friends and neighbors over the local "joe" and fill my basket with the bounty of this great Virginia land. I definitely love it because it supports the local farmers, artisans and other local vendors.

The food is wonderful, the displays are breathtaking, the scene is one you have to be in each week. I love buying directly from people I get to know.
