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 late Fall. Whether you’re a local or visiting, there is something for everyone to enjoy and take home.
Talbot Park Farmers Market
April – October,
Weekly on Wednesday from 3 pm-6:30 pm

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.
