Reprinted with permission from the South of the James Market webpage. The Richmond Marathon is this Saturday morning (November 10th) at the same time as The South of the James Farmers Market.

By Nathan Cushing of RVA News Last month the organization behind the popular South of the James Farmers Market, GrowRVA, began conducting visits to farms that participate in the market. The purpose is twofold: become better acquainted with the farmers and their farms, and verify that farmers actually produce the goods that they sell at the market. Tim [...]
Dirty Richmond covers “Street style, fashion, and life in Richmond, Virginia” mainly through a Tumblr account but recently picked up a video camera and stopped by the South of the James Farmers’ Market.
The next chapter for Karen Atkinson, founder of the South of the James market BY NATHAN CUSHING “My life goes in chapters,” says Karen Atkinson in her Shockoe Bottom office one afternoon last week. She’s just completed a chapter, and now it’s time to work on the next one. All of Richmond is sure to [...]
Well it’s that time of year again. In our neighborhood and throughout the city our Saturdays will mean getting up, dressed a tad earlier and heading to Forest Hill Park.
There are some other carts in the running for Richmond.com’s Best Food Cart but let’s show our love for two of the best and Southbank regulars, Nate’s Taco Truck and Pizza Tonight. From Richmond.com

Great day for the Patrick Henry Winter Market (10-12) and I’ve heard that Mrs. Yoder’s Donuts and Pizza Tonight will be there in full operation. Sunshine, donuts and pizza sounds pretty good to me.
Judging by the smiles I see on 90% of the vendors faces at our South of the James Farmers’ Market and the Winter Market it looks to be a pretty good gig. I wasn’t able to successful turn my yard into a commercial garden this year but some of you might have the product to [...]
LastSecond to last chance of the year to buy some local goods for your faithful merchants. Market runs from 10-12 on the playground of the Patrick Henry School. Vendor list can be found on the The Market Umbrella website, although I wouldn’t be shocked if there were a few no-shows due to the holiday. Read [...]
Before this summer’s South of the James Farmers’ Market started up the organizers (Market Umbrella) announced that they were switching to a producer only model. Producer only means that all products must be handmade, homegrown or homemade in Virginia, and must be approved before vending. Jason Guard at Carmelized Opinion is discussing the pro/cons of [...]
This Saturday marks the last day of the South of the James Farmers’ Market for the season. It has become a neighborhood fixture and the front porch of our area. You can’t go there without spending time talking to folks and leaving with a smile and quality locally grown/produced items. While we may shed a [...]
Anyone that knows Tim and Mary knows that they love the South of the James Farmers’ Market. This week they are professing their love for all the internet to see on their blog, 17 Apart. A less scrupulous man would “borrow” the entire post but being a man of questionable honor I’m only “borrowing” a [...]
I don’t have any more information than what was posted on the Facebook page; Unfortunately, due to various circumstances we will be discontinuing the Souther of the James farmers market on Wednesdays, effective immediately. The Market Umbrella thanks all of its loyal vendors and customers who committed themselves this spring and summer to the success [...]
The most important news is that yes the market will be open. As they said on the Market Umbrella Facebook page, “Stop in for a little post hurricane market. If you have power, restock your freezers. If you don’t, come get dinner…and a hug.” Souther of the James runs on Wednesdays 3 PM – 8 PM at 4910 [...]
An article (Good Eats at South of the James) in today’s Richmond.com gives a brief and glowing description of pretty much every food vendor present. The article also tells you what to do if you are only eating one thing.
They say you should name your business something obvious to what you do. Bill Jones did just that with his free wandering hogs in the woods in Dillwyn, VA.
Henry Reidy is the guy flipping those awesome burgers in that cool little cart at the market. He can be found at the Saturday market, First Fridays and of course our beloved Souther of the James Market, 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. The idea sort of came as a prong off of the [...]
I admire any recycler. Some people have disdain for catching people rooting through dumpsters or “curb alerts.” Not me. I applaud the re-users. It is American legacy to keep things filtering through many hands. Didi Chisholm, owner of Ultra Violet Vintage…… has always had the penchant for the one of a kind. That is the [...]
Ken Spero is the Big Squeeze behind Limeades and More. You simply cannot quench your parched throat in any better way than with one of his shaken, not stirred beverages. Choose between the straight up Limeade, Lemon-Limeade or Lemonade. It may sound simple, but to have thirst-quenching Limeade, you have to have the best ingredients. [...]
