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 any time between Friday at noon to Sunday at 6 PM. 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.

Sorry! We’ve had to suspend our free membership program indefinitely while we deal with the changes that  COVID-19 has brought to our business, but we are still offering paid memberships.

We’d appreciate your patronage!

 

If you can possibly choose a longer-term membership (6 or 12 months), please consider it. The extra funds will help our non-profit pay for extra staffing and equipment and other expenses that we’re incurring due to the rapid changes and increased demand.

Thank you for your interest in our amazing community of farmers and food makers!

 

WANT TO HELP US?  

 

POUNDS OF PLENTY: To help our most vulnerable neighbors, we have a program called Pounds of Plenty. Members order food from that Pounds of Plenty menu, and that food is delivered to a nearby food bank.

DONATE TO THE CENTER FOR RURAL CULTURE: If you’re interested in contributing further, please hit the orange “donate” button at the top of the screen. We are a program of the Center for Rural Culture, which will use your money to help us hire additional staff and purchase additional equipment needed to serve our members and communities during the outbreak.

 

Thank you!
