The Red Hill Farmer’s Market celebrated its first season at the corner of Rt. 29 South and Red Hill School Road in Red Hill with a spread of pumpkins, a bounce house for kids, a food truck (Two Brothers) and live music by Carol Wright, Dennis Knight and Jim Ford.
From left are vendors Fred and Amber Lyssy, Alex Pettigrew, Lynette Meynig, Jamie Barrett, Jerry Jernigan, Deena and Nora Hambsch, Israel Gonzales, Madison Cummings, Bill and Irma Mahone, Katherine Burton, Neal Halvorsen-Taylor and Leslie Benz.
“We have to keep agriculture going in this part of the county,” said Madison Cummings, who added that the market is forming a board now. “We survived the first year. We picked Thursday because of Charlottesville’s being on Saturday. We have a sense of community and we’re trying to enhance that.”
Regular vendors include Pettigrew Woodworks, Ties and Pies, Bellair Farm, Highland Orchard Farm, Loving Cup Vineyard, Buck Island Farm and Mountain Dream Farm.
