Inaugural Black Farmers’ Market
In August, RVA Black Farmers’ Market debuted at The Way of The Lord Fellowship as a space for African American creators, crafters, farmers and growers to showcase their materials to barter, sell or trade. It will be held on the third Saturday of each month.
Black innovators are doing amazing things and the market’s founders, Navi Johnson and Ellis Henderson, want to make sure those innovators get the recognition they deserve. After seeing a surplus of gardening, creating and innovation during these trying times, the RVA Black Farmers’ Market stands as a reminder of resilience and will to survive and share through adversity. Vendors include local bakers, designers, produce and agricultural growers, visual artists, jewelry makers and more.
Admission is free, with capacity based on COVID-19 regulations. Location: 1700 Blair St. For more information, call 804-363-9682.
