Farmers Market

New Kent County is now accepting applications from farmers/vendors to participate in the second season of the New Kent Farmers Market. The Farmers Market will be located at 7589 New Kent Highway, New Kent VA, and will be open 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday from May 9 through October 31.

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.
