In our latest Rich Life segment, we dropped by the Richmond Farmers Market last week and was reminded of just what makes the offbeat offering a local treasure.
You’ll find a wealth of ridiculously cheap fruits and veggies, ranging from peaches and eggplants to exotic Asian greens. And shoppers will also be lured by decadent delights like a kettle corn booth and a deep-fried turkey stand.
Another surprise is the presence of non-food items like cheap electronics and funky fashion, all of it going at rock-bottom prices. You can explore the market in less than half-an-hour.
The Richmond Farmers Market is located in the parking lot at 24th Street and Barrett Avenue, and is open Fridays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
