Overview

The Lynchburg Community Market is the nation's third oldest continuously running market! We have been local and proud since 1783 (before the City was even established). Here at the Lynchburg Community Market, we think local food is important. That’s why we launched the Lynchburg is for Locavores campaign in 2015, celebrating the fantastic local food grown right here in our region and the growing community of local food enthusiasts. By shopping locally, you can meet the 22 local growers at the Lynchburg Community Market and ensure that they are putting as much care into their products as you would put into your meals. The interior of the Lynchburg Community Market hosts an array of shops, restaurants, art and artisan vendors. Learn more about what is in store for your next visit by checking out our vendor page! Community Market: Tues-Sat, 7am - 2pm Heritage Crafters Gallery: Tues-Fri, 9am - 2pm Sat, 7am - 2pm Farmers Market: Wednesday, 10am - 2pm Saturday, 7am - 2pm

If you enjoy home cooking, visit Irene's while at the Market. Irene prepares delicious meals for everyday enjoyment Tuesday through Saturday. On the weekdays, she also cooks up some of her excellent cornbread (it's like cake)! While her other vegetables are right, her string beans...More

This is one of the country's oldest markets, and people here are justifiably proud of it. I especially like the bakery, which offers wonderful, old-world bread varieties that are great, and the coffee brewer that roasts his beans on site. When the fresh produce arrives,...More

Large variety of in-season veggies & fruits! Lots of home made jams, jellies, honey, crafts. It had indoor bakeries, wines, homemade chocolates! Anything you could think to be at a farmer's market, you'll find here. Fun place to visit!
