The Crozet Farmers Market will open Saturday, May 4, at a new location in the Tabor Presbyterian Church parking lot on Crozet Avenue. The market has relocated because construction of a new parking lot for Crozet United Methodist Church is slated to occur during the summer. Market hours are 8 a.m. until noon every Saturday through mid-October.
The Crozet Market is a growers’/producers’ market, providing vendors the opportunity to sell their locally grown produce and handcrafted goods to the public. New vendors are welcome. Proceeds from sales in the market are returned to the community through an annual donation to the Crozet United Methodist Church food pantry.
The market offers a variety of locally grown vegetables, bedding plants, vegetable starts, cut flowers, homemade baked goods, handcrafted jewelry, woodcrafts and pottery. The market also offers the Horticulture Help Desk, staffed by volunteer Piedmont Master Gardeners every second and fourth Saturday of the season. HHD staff can answer questions about horticultural practices, pest control and plant diseases, with aim of safeguarding consumers and the environment against adverse effects. Bring samples of pests or problem plants.
