City Market Reviews & Ratings

  • a great farmers market filled with the usual and the unique. Delicious food and health tasty drinks. Do mot miss the macaroon booth

  • Find all your local and fresh goods here every Saturday. Everyone is friendly and the vibe is great! It's best to take the free trolley, but parking is possible at the water street garage.

  • I'm not a regular vendor this year. I have been blessed to be able to setup as often as a spot comes available. It's very well organized and we'll attended by locals and people visiting the area.

  • One of the best markets in the city! If you're in town it's a must go for produce, meats, food, hand crafted dog treats, and more! We popped in while on holiday and were blown away that a city would house such a nice market.

  • Wonderful farmers market with lots of variety. Delicious food made fresh and/or prepared on the spot. Fresh flowers, herbs, plants to take home for your garden. Also clothing, jewelry, soaps & more treasures. The vendors are very helpful and friendly. There is parking close by. Crowded when the weather is nice, but that is expected. It's a great place to bring friends & family. I hope everyone in Charlottesville & surrounding area gets to enjoy it!
