The neighborhood social media outlets have been a battleground of accusations, hurt feelings, whining, and sympathetic support when it comes to the South of the James Farmers Market move to Bryan Park.

GrowRVA posted yesterday hoping to clarify their plans. Will this put out the hair-rending and weekly question of “is the market coming back”? All signs point to no.

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”☂️

Grow RVA has been weathering COVID-19 and working with Richmond VA Parks and RecreationKristen N. LarsonRMC Events and the RPD to offer the safest set up and practices in order to serve the RVA community. South of the James Farmers Market will remain in Bryan Park through the winter, as we are not sure how the virus will
continue to operate. ❤️

Grow RVA will return home to Forest Hill Park in May 2021. Until then, join us for a Summer Brunch Market in late August. More information will be posted as it is available. ❤️

And Bryan Park, big things to come Summer 2021!❤️

Thank you for your support as we navigate this current complicated situation! Good vibes go a long way!

Stay safe and shop local!❤️
