Independence,VA:  Online Market is OPEN for August 17 pickup!


Happy Wednesday everyone!

This week we are celebrating National Farmer’s Market Week! Without the combined efforts of our vendors, farmers, volunteers and customers, our Farmer’s Market culture would not be possible.

So thank you all for making the Market here in Independence such a resounding success! It’s truly an essential staple of the Grayson County community.

One of the best parts about our Market is that you can shop local online, right? With everything going on this week in the county from the Agriculture Fair to the Fiddler’s Convention to the first week of school, making an order online can save you time and allow you to order things you might be able to get at the in person market. Give it a try if you haven’t yet!

Thank you, happy shopping!
