The Market is OPEN for July 11th pickup!


Good evening!

First of all, happy 4th of July! Second, check out the Market this week when you have a chance! Talk about produce! New on the Market this week are tomatoes and peppers! I’m sure I’ll be reminding you all a lot this Summer, but it’s never too early to start canning all of this yummy produce so you can enjoy it later! You can also reserve your Thanksgiving turkey from Heart Moss Farm by clicking on the “Meat” tab on the left hand side and scrolling down and clicking on “Turkey”.

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

This Friday at the Market is Herb Day! Chef Jen will be offering cooking demonstrations using fresh herbs! At the Kids Corner, we’ll be learning some yoga poses for fun, focus and relaxation! We’ll also be celebrating Herb Day by tasting and smelling some popular herbs.

Thank you so much for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!

Market is CLOSED this week.


Good evening!

Because of the July 4th holiday next Wednesday, we have decided to not open the Market this week. I apologize for the late notice and hope it doesn’t cause too much inconvenience. The Market will re-open for orders on the night of July 4th and pickup will be the following Wednesday, July 11th.

When you have a moment, please be sure to update your phone number on the Online Market. The best number to use would be the one where I can most likely reach you between 4-6 pm on Wednesday afternoons.

A huge thank you to everyone who came out to the the Ice Cream Social this past weekend. Thanks to all of you, we were able to raise $958 for the Market!

Upcoming Events:

Join us for the 7th annual Kids Day June 29 from 9am to 1pm at Town Park. Kids Day features free fun for the whole family during the entire Market. Activities include learning to throw a lasso, printing with wood blocks, milking a “cow,” contests every hour with Miss Laura and more. All activities are free and open to kids of all ages. Community partners include Cowbody Don, 4H, Virginia Department of Health, Blue Ridge Discovery Center, local artist Ellie Kirby, hula hoops with Laura, Girl Scouts, and Bessie the wooden cow.
