Farmers Markets & Foxfield Inn - Charlottesville, VA

The Farmers Markets in town are open and active.  Charlottesville now has 3, count them 3, markets for you to visit.  If you stay with us at Foxfield Inn on Tuesday or Wednesday you can visit the markets in the afternoon.  While if you stay with us on Saturday you can visit the downtown market after breakfast, buy some produce or food for a picnic lunch and then head out to a winery or to Monticello and enjoy lunch there.
 
  1. City Market - corner of Market and South Street - is open on Saturdays April through October from 7:00am - 12:00 noon plus in November and December from 8:00am - 2:00pm
  2. The Market at Pen Park is open May through September on Tuesdays from 3:00pm - 7:00pm
  3. Farmers in the Park - corner of Chesapeake St and Meade Avenue - is open Wednesday May - September from 3:00pm - 7:00pm.

 

If you can't make it to one of these we can help you find a farm stand, store or orchard that sells locally produced fresh fruit and vegetables.

I just harvested a lot of herbs from our garden today and it is so nice to have the aroma of freshly picked herbs in the kitchen.  I can hardly wait to use them in our breakfast dish tomorrow morning - Eggs a la Parisian (also known as herbed baked eggs).  Fresh chervil, tarragon and parsley!
