Independence,VA:  Market is OPEN for Feb. 13th pickup!


Good evening,

Time to place your order! When ordering this week, keep in mind Valentine’s Day! We have a great variety of sweet treats, but if your love doesn’t have a sweet tooth, there’s nothing like saying “I love you” with a locally grown and produced steak.

Speaking of steak, keep in mind that most of the meat listed on the Market is sold by the pound. We do it this way because meat cuts can be radically different in size. If you’d like a price on the meat you’re ordering, please feel free to contact the vendor directly for the total.

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

Join us for the 2nd workshop of the season February 23 from 9 am to noon at the GLC/IFM office on 108 Courthouse Street. Cost is $10 and includes light refreshments. Learn to use the handy fertilizer calculator, how to set up a worm bin for making your own compost, and planning for likely diseases and pests so you can catch things early when they are easier to control. We’ll bring our favorite tools and control measures. Space is limited so be sure to let Michelle know if you plan to attend (

Thank you for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!

(Bill Withers)
