The New Kent Farmers Market (NKFM) is a producers-only market. No reselling of purchased items is permitted. All producers must participate in growing/making the produce/products that they sell or have a partnership with the farm/producer from which they are selling products. Items permitted for sale are Virginia-grown fresh fruits and berries, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, landscaping and vegetable plants, cut flowers, eggs, cheese, honey, and meats. All products must be in accordance with Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) guidelines. Baked goods and other value-added products (such as jellies, jams, preserves, pickles, and roasted coffee) prepared by the producer according to VDACS standards may also be sold. The producer is responsible for all required licenses and certifications. Crafts and non-food items (including soaps, cosmetics, and some herbal products) made by the producer may be sold as long as they are locally produced. Crafts and non-food items may not account for more than 25% of participating producers.
