Charlottesville’s Drive-Through Farmers Markets

This video was posted to our Youtube, Facebook, and Instagram accounts on 4/30/2020.

Now more than ever, local food producers are demonstrating their value and continued dedication to serving our communities local, healthy, fresh foods.

Charlottesville’s City Market and Local Food Hub have led the way in our region by developing drive-through farmers markets that allow people to buy from their local farmers in a safe and controlled environment.

Fauquier County’s Warrenton and Archwood Green Barns farmers markets have also begun drive-through operations. Many other farmers markets throughout the region are open and offering pre-orders and curbside pickup options. Are farmers markets in your neck of the woods offering new pickup options? Let us know in the comments!

The Piedmont Environmental Council is committed to supporting farmers and the local agricultural economy through programs like Buy Fresh Buy Local. Head to to see an online version of our most recent Buy Fresh Buy Local guides and to find information about all sorts of local food producers and sellers.
