The Suffolk Farmers' Market is a popular outlet for locally grown fruits and vegetables, baked goods, organically raised poultry, fresh eggs and milk, honey and a variety of artisan-crafted goods.

In May, the Market will kick off a new season in the open air special event pavilion, conveniently located behind the Suffolk Visitor Center at 524 North Main Street in downtown. Free and open to the public, the Market will host a variety of Family Fun Days, special guest speakers and performers, petting zoos, book signings, workshops, crafts and more.

The Suffolk Farmers' Market is founded on the concept of preserving the City's agricultural heritage through wholesome family activities. Our mission is to support local family farms and artisans by creating a place of connectivity between producers and consumers. Market participation is open to regional producers within a 100-mile radius of Suffolk.
