The Chesterfield County Farmers Market is located in the Chesterfield County Government Center Complex. This friendly mid-week market has a nice mix of vendors and is popular among county employees and nearby residents.

Stop by to see it for yourself, Wednesdays from 2:30pm to 5:30pm. But do it soon as the market closes for the season August 30th.

Because they are participating in our metrics program, you may see the energetic Market Manager Debbie Koller counting visitors and doing quick visitor surveys while you're there.
