Independence,VA:  Market is OPEN for August 15th pickup!


Good evening!

The Market is open and ready for your orders! If you didn’t see our Facebook post this week, here are some interesting numbers from our Market so far this year. More than 2000 customers have visited the IFM and our vendors have earned over $52,000. Our food travels an average of 21 miles to Market-most food eaten in the US travels 1200 miles!

Our GoFundMe campaign ends this Friday! We’ve raised $955 thus far and we are so close to our $1,000 goal! Thank you all so much for the help!

Are you ready for the Fair?!
The Grayson County Livestock Show and Fair will be held next Saturday August 11. Hours are 9am to 4pm and admission is free. The location is Bottomley’s Evergreens and Farm, 10278 Elk Creek Pkwy, Elk Creek, VA 24326.

There is still time to prepare an exhibit and enter the fair. You will find all the information needed at the Grayson County Tourism website as well as the “Fair” tab on the Independence Farmers Market homepage.

We have just created a special youth art category! Anyone under the age of 12 is invited to make a print using cut vegetables. Mushrooms, apples and bell peppers cut in half work well. A bunch of celery cut at the bottom makes a print similar to a flower. Sliced okra is also attractive. Pick some vegetables and have fun! Entries will be accepted at the same time as the other exhibits mentioned below.

With the exception of the youth art category, the exhibits this first year are limited to vegetables, baked and canned goods. Please bring your entries to Bottomley’s Evergreens and Farm on Thursday, August 9, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. and Friday, August 10, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Pre-registration forms are available on the websites listed above and forms will also be available during registration. Pre-registration is not necessary in order to participate in the county fair but is highly recommended. All products must be grown or made by the exhibitor during the current calendar year. There are youth and adult entry forms.

Your exhibit will be tagged and you’ll receive a claim tag. Exhibit tags will be folded to maintain anonymity during judging. Judging will occur Friday afternoon and is closed to the public. Exhibits with ribbons will be on display during the fair. Exhibits will be available for pickup Sunday from 4-6pm.

Our second Ice Cream Social of the season is happening August 19th! Mark your calendars now and stay tuned for more details!

Thank you for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!
