How We Work
After registering on our site, you shop online. You pay for your order online and then pick it up the following week at one of our many area pick-up locations. Our online marketplace is available all year round.
Orders are delivered fresh, straight from the farms to our staff, where we aggregate them at the Chiknegg Incubator Kitchen, sort them, and store them until ready for delivery. We currently have pick-up sites at seven area locations. All pickups are either on Wednesdays or Thursdays, depending on your location. Pick the location that works best for YOU! You can even change your preferred pick-up location at anytime prior to placing your order.
RVAg has been providing access to fresh, local food to the Richmond community through our area farmers markets since we opened our flagship market - Manakin Market, in 2011. With the addition of our online marketplace, we can now offer our market shoppers an additional way to purchase farm fresh local food, while supporting our farmers and producers and keeping valuable farmland in production.
