From Cullipher Farms produce, to Full Quiver Farm, to smaller specialty vendors like Old Church Creamery, a touch of everything one would need to make a delicious locally sourced meal is at the Shore Drive Farm Market. Organized by the outspoken owner of Lynnhaven Coffee Company, Donald Edwards, along with Jill Doczi and Tammy Deane, the market has served as a food hub that highlights some of the best local produce and wares 52 weeks a year, every Saturday, since June of 2015.
With, “ […] many people, not even wanting to venture across the Lesner bridge,” as Edwards told me, he, Jill, and Tammy wanted to bring a true old school “neighborhood market ” to the area. Among the many food vendors, Pendulum Fine Meats and Savor the Olive to name a few, when they coalesce at the market to the betterment of many local bellies, the positive benefits are substantial. It’s no stretch to say, for the trio, mission accomplished!
The Shore Drive Farm Market is located at 297 Shore Drive in Virginia Beach and online at facebook.com/Shoredrivefarmarket
