Farmer's Markets in Hampton Roads??

aryqalyn | Apr 30, 2008 08:13 AM

I grew up in northern Virginia and loved to go to the farmer's market with my parents during the summer. The farmers would pull up to the local park and set up stands next to their trucks. There was lots of fresh produce, ripe and inexpensive, and homemade goodies. The Farmer's Market here in Virginia Beach was a huge disappointment. I found it hard to believe that the sellers were "farmers" rather than "distributors. "I only went once, so maybe I didn't give it a fair shot, but I wasn't impressed by price, variety, or freshness. Did I just have a bad experience and they need another shot? Is there someplace else in the area that has more of the atmosphere I am looking for?
