It’s Farmers Market Week in Virginia, and we’d be remiss not to recognize one of this state’s best.

The Suffolk Farmers’ Market, now in its 18th season, runs every Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., from May to mid-November at the Suffolk Visitor Center Pavilion, 524 N. Main St. Most people think of a farmers’ market as the place to buy locally grown fruits and vegetables directly from the farmers who grow them. Suffolk’s market is that, but you’ll find more than just fruits and vegetables.

Baked goods, meat and eggs, jellies and jams, honey and pickles are also among the locally grown, made and crafted foods available at the Suffolk Farmers’ Market. The market also includes lots of vendors selling artisan crafts of many shapes and sizes.
