2019 Manakin Market Holiday Farm & Craft Market on Saturday, December 7th, 2019, operated by RVAg, Inc., is dedicated to promoting a sustainable food system in Central Virginia, and to educating people about the connections between sustainable agriculture and the health of the region and its people. 2019 Manakin Market Holiday Farm & Craft Market favors farmers/growers/producers who farm the land using sustainable agricultural practices or raise livestock using humane and sustainable practices. By providing a direct marketing opportunity to farmers/growers/producers and by providing educational opportunities to consumers, 2019 Manakin Market Holiday Farm & Craft Market helps sustain the regional farming economy and helps ensure the future of farming in Central Virginia.

2019 Manakin Market Holiday Farm & Craft Market is conveniently located at 68 Broad Street Road in Manakin-Sabot, VA in the Eastern end of Goochland County. The market is adjacent to I-64 and Route 288, just five minutes west of Downtown Short Pump.

Our 2019 Manakin Market Holiday Farm & Craft Market will be held at the same site as our seasonal market, under cover of two large marque tents. You may chose to bring your own tent with sides so that you have protection from wind and/or rain if your stall is located outside the marque. The marquees will be filled on a first come, first served basis, and Market Management will inform vendors where their stall is assigned to. The market will be held rain or shine. If vendors should instead choose to vend outside of the perimeter of the marquee, all canopies, umbrellas, and other forms of stall cover must be sufficiently and safely secured to the ground, from the moment the canopy is erected at the start of the market day until the moment immediately before it is taken down at the end of the market. If tents are inadequately secured, market management will ask the farmer/grower/producer to take it down and sell without it.

Your application fee must be received prior to your application being considered, and must be received no later than 12/01/19.

Programs at the market include:• Free weekly children’s activities with a food or agricultural theme• Free live music each week• Chef at the Market chef’s demo’s• Food Preservation programs – we were one of 30 markets in the country in 2015 to be selected to participate in Jarden Consumer Service’s Discover Market Fresh℠: Learn, Make, Share program. We were able to have a vacuum sealing station at the market during July, August and September and were able to educate consumers on food preservation methods using vacuum sealing, as well as encourage them to purchase more products from our vendors.• Other programs centered around the market’s weekly them, such as pet adoptions, square dancing, yoga, fire safety, etc.• Marketeers Club program allows children aged 6-16 to participate as vendors on the last Saturday of each month to sell what they have grown or made themselves• Club Sprout program encourages children to try new foods each week and provides them with a card that can be stamped. They have to write what they liked or didn’t like about each food and are rewarded after completing their card by receiving sponsor provided gifts (free pass to Children’s Museum or mini-golf, etc.)• SNAP IT UP! Double Value SNAP (food stamp) program
