17th Street Market

The 17th Street Market property is owned, operated, and managed as a public venue by the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities. As one of the oldest public markets in America, and possibly Virginia’s longest continuously operating Farmers Market, the 17th Street Market has been a center for commerce and connection for more than 275 years.

The market venue hosts festivals, music, art, vendors, educational programming and a weekly farmers market.

17th Street Market embodies Shockoe Bottom’s vibrant character and serves as a neighborhood resource. At the recently renovated market, the Richmond community will find a renewed space that remains connected to its long and rich history.
