What better way to taste fresh Norfolk cuisine than attending one of our farmers' markets? Norfolk's season to shop fresh and local begins in April and ends in December. Whether you're a local or visiting, there is something for everyone to enjoy and take home. 

Hampton Boulevard Farmers Market

April – October, weekly on Wednesday from 3pm-6pm
7400 Hampton Boulevard

Colorful produce dominates the market, fresh donut aromas linger in the air and free sausage samples hot off the grill are passed around. This dog and kid friendly local affair offers you an array of goods from fresh crab soup, to local honey, soaps and so much more. Grab a Joysicles Gourmet Pop or a fresh donut while you meander around and you will quickly find that you shouldn’t shop while on an empty stomach, right? See all of their upcoming vendors here

Riverview Village Days Farmers' Market

April – December, every 2nd and 4th Sunday
Lafayette Park

The largest farmers' market in Norfolk, Riverview Village Days truly feels like a small village. In their peak season, copious amounts of artists, crafters, food trucks and local farmers fill up Lafayette Park. Since you’re only a few steps away, check out the Virginia Zoo afterward.

The Markets Fare at East Beach
