About the Market
The Center for Rural Culture's Fall Line Farms and Local Roots is Richmond Virginia's non-profit online farmers market.
Each week our producers post the products they have available, setting their own prices, uploading their own descriptions and photos. You can read about their farming practices and contact them directly with questions.
Using our buying pages (a Lulus Local Food site), you shop online with us between Friday and Sunday. You pay for your order online and then pick it up on the following Thursday afternoon at one of our Richmond area pickup locations.
Orders are delivered fresh, straight from the farms on Thursdays. Our producers share in the delivery process and we rely on volunteers to sort the orders at the pickup locations. This cooperative system allows us to keep delivery costs down to a minimum meaning more money goes back to the producers.
Local churches and small businesses host our pickup locations
We have 50+ small family farms and other local businesses involved in the market
We have produce, meat, eggs, dairy, prepared foods, baked goods, plants for your garden and more. Our producers are family farms and other small businesses in and around the greater Richmond, Virginia area.
You will truly eat with the season when you buy your food from local farms.
