Greene Farmers Market Now Open for Business | Lifestyles
The cold weather didn’t deter locals from coming on the opening day of the Greene County Farmers’ Market on Saturday, April 2. Plants, arts and crafts, and early spring baked goods were available, as were handmade soaps, lotions, gluten-free items, and fresh eggs. .
A new supplier this year is Albemarle Cannabis Co., a small, Charlottesville-based, woman-owned family business that offers Virginia-grown hemp products, edibles to oils, as well as cannabis education. Barbara Kipps of Kipps Grapes in Madison County was selling a wide variety of handmade jams – all from her own locally grown fruit – including kiwifruit jam and a savory grape and tomato variety that goes great with a goat cheese spread.
Susan Woodward of Hawk Hollow Greenhouse had her usual array of chicken and duck eggs, plant seedlings and freshly baked cookies for sale, and Tameron Washington of T’s Sweetz had a tantalizing display of unique cinnamon buns and other treats.
The Farmers’ Market is held at the Greene Commons Pavilion, behind the County Administration Building on Celt Road in Stanardsville, every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. For more information about the marketplace or its vendors, visit www.greenecommons.com.
