New Kent County is excited for the second season of the New Kent Farmers Market! 

Virginia FM LOVE

Due to COVID-19, the Market location and time have been changed. The New Kent Farmers Market will be held in the New Kent High School parking lot (7365 Egypt Rd, New Kent VA), and will be open for on-site shopping from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. every Saturday beginning June 20. Customers are encouraged to pre-order through vendors and pre-pay is also encouraged. Find out which vendors will be at the Market this week.

The New Kent Farmers Market is a producers-only market. No reselling of purchased items is permitted. All vendors must participate in growing/making the produce/products that they sell. Items permitted for sale are Virginia-grown fresh fruits and berries, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, landscaping and vegetable plants, cut flowers, eggs, cheese, honey, and meats. All products must be in accordance with Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) guidelines. Baked goods and other value-added products (such as jellies, jams, preserves, pickles, and roasted coffee) prepared by the vendor according to VDACS standards may also be sold. The vendor is responsible for all required licenses and certifications. Crafts and non-food items (including soaps, cosmetics, and some herbal products) made by the vendor may be sold as long as they are locally produced. Crafts and non-food items shall not account for more than 25% of participating vendors.

If you are interested in participating in the 2020 New Kent Farmers Market as a vendor, applications are available online. Please review the vendor guidelines before applying.
