Farmers Market (SOJ) / by Katie Brown

 SOJ Farmers Market 

Any Richmond-er who has not been to the SOJFM, go immediately (aka the next Saturday)

It is something I look forward to during the warmer months every weekend that I am in town. It is an open-air market with all local produce and items with many food trucks surrounding the vendors. It is the biggest farmers market in the area. When I go, I like to get some free-range eggs, a few veggies and kombucha!

Some of the local farmers that are usually always there are (click on the name for their website) , Agriberry Produce, Alfredo's Raw HoneyBarham SeafoodCabbage Hill Farm Produce, Cold Country SalmonJason Talleys ProduceKing's ProducePair-a-Dice FarmNinja Kombucha, Flower Child GranolaReginald's Homemade Nut ButtersVegTaBowl Foods


Food Trucks are the next best thing about SOJ. Alchemy Coffee, Kitchenette, Ms. Yoders Donuts,    Sammich, and Limeades & More (the best limeades in town!)

Kitchenette is known for their "bagels with the works". This is what I always get, aka I eat this once a week during the summer. They get their bagels from Cupertino's Bagel & Deli (real NY bagels). The Works = a toasted bagel + cream cheese + microgreens, tomatoes, onions, capers and drizzle balsamic glaze on top. I will be posting a photo next time I get this. However, the line typically is usually pretty long and you will wait at least 10 minutes after you order for your food but I promise, it will not disappoint!!
