VA in Top 10 for Winter Farmers Markets in US

RICHMOND, VA (AP) - Virginia is among the nation's top 10 states when it comes to winter farmers markets.

The state comes in at number 10 in the listing compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. As you might expect, California tops the list, but the northern state of New York is a close behind. Florida follows, then Maryland, Texas, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Georgia.

Virginia has 53 markets selling jams, jellies, honey, milk, eggs, cheese and meat products. Produce available during colder months include apples, greens such as spinach, herbs and sweet potatoes.

Winter markets account for about one-fourth of the 7,865 farmers markets listed in the USDA national directory.
