Suffolk to host drive-through Farmers’ Market


SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Miss shopping at the Suffolk Farmers’ Market? You’ll be able to order from its vendors soon.

The coronavirus pandemic has canceled many public events, including the Suffolk Farmers’ Market.

But that doesn’t mean the community has to stop shopping.

“It’s very helpful to be able to still work and provide what the community needs,” said Cami Barnes of JC3 Family Farm. “It also helps me and my family out financially. So far, a lot of people are reaching out and they seem really excited about it and they’re sharing it. We have lots of local support, so I’m getting more more excited about it.”

Beginning on April 28, customers can order products from farmers’ market vendors by phone or email. Customers will be able to pick up their purchases on May 2 at the Suffolk Farmers’ Market-to-go. The market will operate from 9 a.m. until noon with a drive-through process. Pre-payment for purchases is required.

“We’re going to have all sorts of baked goods, artisan bread, fresh strawberry preserves, caramel popcorn, cobblers,” said Barnes. “I’ve had a lot of orders already within a couple days. I had about 20 orders and that’s big orders. So I’m really excited to see the response and the local support.”

The to-go farmers’ market will be located in the visitor parking lot at 524 North Main Street.

A list of available products can be found on the city’s website.
