Let’s look first at the Big Momma of farmers markets around here, Charlottesville’s oldest open air market, the one voted #1 Farmers Market in Virginia by American Farmland Trust’s Farmers Market Celebration and Virginia Living. Saturday mornings from April through November the Charlottesville City Market, at the corner of Water Street and 2nd Street SE, is the de facto town square, where you’ll meet anybody or everybody—usually with coffee, street food, or stroller in hand—socializing, perusing,

Farmers Markets: Great Goods, Great People BY KEN WILSON

“F

eel good about what you buy! Feel good while you feast!” The folks at Market Central in Charlottesville are on a mission to support local farms, farmers markets, and entrepreneurs and connect them to the local community. And if feeling good and tasting great aren’t incen-

tive enough, let them be more specific. Our local markets, they’ll tell you— and we have a bunch—don’t just offer fresh and locally grown food. They also support farmers who engage in environmentally responsible practices, sustaining their land for future generations and staving off rural development. They help drive the economy, incubat-

ing new businesses—food trucks!—and creating jobs. They provide venues for local artisans to sell their creative wares. And last (but hardly least) they are intergenerational gathering places where we can enjoy the cultural diversity with which Charlottesville and Albemarle County are blessed.

inspecting, and deliberating between, say, Albemarle, Nelson, or Fluvanna County salad greens. It’s a combo of fruits of the earth/creative labors of the hand scene, with crafts like soap and jewelry for sale alongside fruit and produce, herbs and plants, meat and cheese, and prepared foods. Breakfast browsers can enjoy fresh artisan breads, apple cider doughnuts, organic bagels, and other culturally diverse treats that are made on location and line the Water Street side. Lesly Gourdet began selling his LG’s Elixir here in May of 2018. It’s “a concoction—aka a tonic,” he is proud to say, that he has worked on “closing in on three decades.” Gourdet’s dedication is impressive—and he comes by it naturally. Born and raised in Haiti, he learned from his adored great-grandmother, who could make a medicine cabinet from the world of nature outside her door. “When any of the children’s health was compromised,” he remembers, “she would treat them with her special homemade potion of carefully picked herbs, spices and a host of various leaves.” Crafted with ten organic or naturally grown ingredients (turmeric, garlic, ginger, onion, lemon, lime, black pepper, habanero, apple cider vinegar, agave), Gourdet’s own “One Shot at a Time Makes One Feel Sublime” elixir is cold-pressed with no added water or preservatives. That makes it, he avers, “quite powerful and potent. Hence one to two ounces is the daily recommended dosage.” While the eight-ounce bottle is the most popular with first time buyers, lately many of his customers have stepped up to the 32-ounce size. But Gourdet doesn’t just come to sell. “I have been patronizing farmers markets for a bit over thirty years in Charlottesville,” he says, “and literally and traditionally my entire life! I do about 90 percent of my shopping from farmers markets.” The depth and variety of talent of the artisans he finds there (as well as at our


In nearby Forest Lakes South in Charlottesville, local farmers, artisans, and prepared food vendors set up shop every Tuesday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., late April through October, in the community pool parking lot at 1650 Ashwood Boulevard. Besides fresh produce, baked goods, plants, and crafts, shoppers can feast their eyes and tease their tastebuds while choosing from three different food trucks. One week there may be Mexican tacos, Filipino chicken and pork belly barbeque and cheesy raclette to bring home for dinner; the next there might be fajitas, made from scratch buttermilk biscuits, and handcrafted chocolates. Forest Lakes Farmers Market is pet friendly, and will be open this year through October 11.

resource in today’s emerging and rapidly expanding cannabis industry. “We have been vending at IX Park since late 2019. It was one of the first places to offer local support. We deeply value our partnership with IX and Market Central and their ever-supportive and innovative staff, with its openness to grow and support the community in a variety of ways. IX truly strives to bring a comprehensive, locally supported and curated market for our community, in our humble opinion.” Among the organic Virginia grown hemp articles, her company offers sublingual tinctures, bath oils, supportive pet care items, and edible cannabis treats like gummies and honey. “We often develop new products in partnership with other farm to table small businesses such as Philosopher’s Tea (local lavender) and Hungry Hill (local honey),” Kuhn says. Her customers range in age from 20 to 80-somethings. So what do Kuhn and her husband Joe like to bring home from other vendors? “What don’t we enjoy purchasing?” she laughs. “We are weak in the knees for everything from fresh salmon, locally made jewelry, gluten free (and regular) breads, pastries, orchids, woven bags, produce, freshly made foods, locally blown glass, farm raised duck, beef, local eggs, cut flowers, elixirs and tonics, coffee, sake, pies [and] locally made Bloody Mary mix.” While she sells her own products at IX, Leigh and Joe also patronize other local markets including Charlottesville City Market and those in Crozet, Greene and Nelson counties. “We feel that to be a true community business, reciprocity and collaboration are a vital fabric that lift our local commerce,” she says. And

she means it. “We also want to encourage room for other fellow CBD vendors to sell there as well, and continue to build the collaborative spirit we value.” The Farmers Market at Ix Art Park is open from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at 522 2nd St. SE. A weekday edition launched on Thursday, May 5 and will run throughout the summer. Sponsored by Market Central and IX Art Park, the Sunset Market At Ix Art Park runs Thursday evenings from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., with farm produce, prepared food, and artisanal crafts, all by local small businesses. A list of participating vendors is posted weekly on the Market Central website and Facebook page.

Farmers in the Park Every vendor is a local at Farmers in the Park, held Wednesdays from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. on the corner of Chesapeake and Meade Avenue. Smaller in size (but not charm) than its bustling Saturday counterparts, Farmers in the Park offers a wide selection of farm fresh vegetables, fruit, baked goods, plants, and a whole lot more. It’s open annually from May to September.

Albemarle Farmers Market From farm to market, from dirt to gravel—Albemarle Farmers Market takes place each Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in a gravel lot across from Starbucks in the Hollymead Town Center Shopping Center. Local vendors have everything from produce, eggs, meats, and seafood, to honey, jams, pickles, and salsa. Others offer garden plants, fresh cut flowers, soaps, lotions, other personal and home products, plus a large variety

Area farmers and artisans get together once a week in the parking lot at Buck Mountain Episcopal Church for the Earlysville Farmers Market. Meat, eggs and cheese, bread and baked goods, and fruits and vegetables are for sale, along with much more to whet the appetite and liven up the table—spices, jellies, pickles, relish, and the like, as well as soap and local craft items. The Earlysville Farmers Market is currently open each Thursday from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Crozet Farmers Market The Crozet Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, May through mid-October. Head for the grassy field behind the Blue Goose Building on the corner of Jarmans Gap Rd. and Crozet Avenue for vegetables and vegetable starts, baked goods, honey, and maple syrup, plus bedding plants, cut flowers, jewelry, lotion, woodcrafts and pottery. Vendors here returned $1,000 to the community in 2021 with a donation to the Crozet United Methodist Church (CUMC) Food Pantry. One popular feature at the Crozet Market is the Horticulture Help Desk, staffed every second and fourth Saturday by volunteer Piedmont Master Gardeners who answer questions about plants, plant disease, pest control, and safe and environmentally responsible horticultural practices. Visitors can bring samples of pests or problem plants. For help answering questions, HHD volunteers access Virginia Cooperative Extension.

It’s Market Time The crops are in the ground, the weather is fine, the pantry wants filling, and a lot of folks are going to market. Let’s give one of our local creators the last word on just how fortunate we are around here. “We deeply value the kinship and camaraderie that exist amongst fellow vendors,” says Leigh Anne Kuhn “There is a respect and community that one could never put a price on, nor truly articulate the value of. The market community, atmosphere, and connections are part of the ties that keep us bound with the Charlottesville love we hold so dear.”

THE REAL ESTATE WEEKLY WWW.C-VILLE.COM

Many Saturday morning shoppers (and vendors including LG’S Elixir) like to hit both City Market and (just a few blocks away) the Farmers Market at IX Art Park. As a site celebrated for its come what may, let it all hang out creativity, IX is about where you’d expect to find a booth belonging to a cutting-edge outfit like Albemarle Cannabis Company. In the words of owner and COO Leigh Anne Kuhn, ACC is a “woman-owned, family-operated business trying to grow, and provide a local, trusted cannabis

arts, crafts, and music festivals) are “truly extraordinary,” Gourdet says. “So that translates to shopping for gifts for family and friends. C’est la Vie!” Jeweler Robin Braun has been selling at Charlottesville City Market since 2008, and she could hardly be more enthusiastic. It’s a market, she says, with a group of vendors “who care very much about every detail of what they are doing and selling. “Because we are a producer-only market, the person selling the item is often the person who made it, so they are the most knowledgeable about the item being sold. This is critical to the market functioning properly.” And her customers? “My customers could not be nicer,” Braun answers. “Over and over, I am struck by that fact.” Another market pleasure Braun looks forward to is the food, like tofu dumplings from Got Dumplings, and “the very thoughtfully produced and delicious products”—cookies and shortbread—for example, from Althea Bread. “I purchase all of my gifts at the Market, as well as most of my produce, some readymade food, and kombucha from Mountain Culture Kombucha.” “The vendors are so grateful to the community for supporting us! I am so lucky to earn my living this way, and I could not do it without the excellent— and I do mean excellent—folks who run the market, as well as our wonderful customers.” All in all over 100 vendors come together for Charlottesville City Market, nine months of the year: 8:00 a.m. till 12 noon from April through September, and 8:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. from October through December. Like all our local markets, Charlottesville City Market is family friendly. Young kids, and dogs on leashes, are welcome—cats too if they can stand it!
