Fredericksburg Regional Food Initiatives
To thrive, healthy communities need healthy foods. Fresh local products offer superior taste and value and build community engagement. To support the growing demand for local foods in the Fredericksburg region, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and King George are working together as a regional marketing association. The goals are to increase access to fresh foods and promote regional farmers markets.
The Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and King George Farmers Markets are full of fresh seasonal produce and specialty products for you to enjoy. Visit the markets often for great seasonal variety and farm fresh values. Bring your family for a fun, healthy community outing to meet the farmers who grow your food. When you Buy Fresh Buy Local, you support nearby family farms and preserve our rural heritage. Your dollars stay in the local economy and you support a more sustainable local food system.
Credit, Debit and SNAP EBT cards (formerly Food Stamps) are accepted at all markets through the Buy Fresh Buy Local Token program. SNAP shoppers get bonus tokens to buy additional fresh food, through support from the Wholesome Wave Foundation. Visit the Market Manager's booth for more information.
