Always has fresh tasty vegetables and other foods that are produced locally by our nearby Virginia farmers. It is such a wonderful community effort with good hard working Americans who should get a big "Thank You" for providing such homegrown and homemade foods!

Great vendors who believe in organic and local food and customers who know farming can only survive if it stays in the hands of the local owners and not conglomerates who take the money away from the communities.

The Goochland vendors are collaborative and supportive. Some of our vendors have experienced accidents and illnesses; others have suffered personal losses. In good times and bad, other vendors have pitched in to help. New vendors are welcomed into the circle. Together, vendors and customers have created a true sense of community.

I support the Goochland Farmers Market as it provides an opportunity to purchase fresh, non chemically treated vegtables, range free eggs and homebaked goods. On the flip side of purchasing food, it encourages farmers by providing a venue where they can sell their wares and hopefully make enough profit to encourage them to continue their farming.

It's important to me to have access to locally grown foods, and foods that are grown by the healthiest methods and standards. I like being able to ask questions directly to the supplier. I find the suppliers at Goochland Farmers Market are in agreement with my emphasis on the cleanest, most nutritious foods. Goochland Farmers Market is my primary resource in a search for optimal foods! I find the foods to be tastier, fresher, and the selection better than at any grocery store for in-season regional foods.

I grew up a country girl! We had a big garden that we grew every year along with our livestock that we raised. There is nothing better than home grown produce, preparing it and preserving it to enjoy on those chilly winter nights. Times have changed and I don't have the time to maintain a garden but I make the time to attend the Goochland Farmer's Market. It reminds of home and the good times that we had as a family enjoying the treats from the garden while preserving the future!

I have found myself educated about diverse, healthy foods I have not otherwise been aware of, as well as matters that have since become important to me at the state and national level which affect our local farmers and their prosperity. They are a fantastic farmers market with the most wonderful, friendly, and supportive people running it!
