VCU Market in the Garden Returns November 20

Thanks for everyone who has made our farmer's market such a huge success! The next market is coming up soon, and it has a new name: VCU Market in the Garden. We will be giving out free hot apple cider to help everyone keep warm!

Tuesday, November 20th
Rain or Shine
VCU Community Garden
(next to Larrick Student Center)

This is the last market until Spring, when markets will start up again January 22nd, and every 3rd Tuesday after that. Come and say hi to our vendors - Umami: Gourmet Coffee and Teas, Tricycle Gardens, Faith Farms, AnnaB Gluten Free Bakery, and Rachel's Farmstand. We are working on getting additional vendors selling spices, cupcakes, chocolate, natural beauty products, and sustainable fair-trade jewelry. Let us know if there's any other kinds of products you'd like to see!

As always, we offer free recycling for electronics and other hard to recycle items. A full list of what we can accept can be found here. By recycling with us you help keep harmful chemicals out of the ground and water - good on you!
