The staff is incredibly helpful, the food is local and fresh, and someone is always available with a suggestion for preparation. Not only that, but I save money (compared with the local grocery store) and know I am feeding my family fresh, safe, and healthy food.

Five Points Market is a super friendly community supported market that helps local farmers, and many small business owners with their produce and specialty foods. You find items and classes there you can't find anywhere else in Norfolk!! It's a perfect location, and the farmers market brings in lots of like-minded shoppers - but they really need help with the building!

The folks at 5-points have prevailed in keeping open a store that is a focal point of the local food, slow food, and organic food movements, as well as doubling as a community meeting center. Their success is a boon to Norfolk and the entire Hampton Roads region, as they provide a model for what can be done when a small group of people care enough.

The stats are that in a big grocery store, only 18 cents of every dollar spent on produce goes back to the farmer; the other 82 cents goes to the middlemen. The Five Points Community Farm Market supports our local natural and organic farmers. The food is fresh, nutritious and delicious. Chrissie rocks out cooking and concocting the best foods at the deli counter. Why support Five Points CFM? Its not just the right thing to do, its the best thing to do.

Five Points brings a sorely lacking service to Norfolk, VA. The population of Norfolk is, in many respects, many years behind other top metro areas in establishing symbiotic relationships with local farmers and urban customers. By establishing a retail farmer's market in a depressed urban part of Norfolk's inner city, and also offering a traditional CSA program for citizens elsewhere in the city, Five Points both helps inspire and improve the neighborhoods in which it operates, evangelize the value of healthy, local food products, and generally blaze a way to a more enlightened future for Norfolk that will hopefully include a greater emphasis on recycling and other green practices.

It is very important to buy local as often as you can. The money stays in the community plus the food that is produced locally does not tend to cause allergic reactions to those who have lots of allergies! Five Points Community Farm Market not only supports the local farmers, but brings in fresh produce from other points in the south. Additionally, they have a great fish monger on premise!! His seafood is fresh and affordable! Did I mention the cafe? It's the bomb!!

Five Points truly gives back to the greater Tidewater community. It brings the bounty of surrouding agricultural areas (Suffolk, NC, etc) to the heart of the city. Folks can have the most nutritious, unprocessed foods which often comes from farmers concerned about how and what they grow! It's a friendly place and a fun outing for the little ones too!

Five Points works hard for the community and the farmers. It is more like a community center with locally grown produce. They also have a great little lunch counter and they often host events. It is a real asset to the whole southside but especially to Norfolk.

This Farm Market not only nourishes our bodies with locally and regionally grown produce, seafood, dairy, and baked goods, it also nourishes our minds! The library is home to an Official BookCrossing Zone, where the Market's customers can browse it's extensive list of titles in all genres, and even take a book home. It is especially nice for kids to be able to pick out a book from it's large Children's section. This place really takes care of it's community and customers, body and soul.

Five Points is a progressive, community-oriented place, supporting its local & regional farmers to bring fresh produce to the customers; and it supports the arts by bringing local talent to the marketplace so that the shoppers and the artists & musicians can interact and appreciate each other. It is also a Farm Market that promotes civic activities and responsibilities. In January, it hosted a live simulcast of the inaugural so that the community could share in the historical occasion. Five Points is a nurturing and active partner to the neighborhood--in all sense of the word. Wonderful folks, wonderful concept, great asset to the area.

The Farm Market provides fresh local produce and other locally produced food. They have tomatoes that taste like tomatoes instead of styrofoam! Each year they seem to make some improvements and add some more vendors. With all the emphasis on healthy eating, including lots of fruits and vegetables, the Farm Market fills a niche that is good for everyone.
