Find Fresh Food

Food that's easy to find, afford, and use.

We work to make the freshest and healthiest food accessible to everyone. As a non-profit, we are supported by funders and volunteers, which makes it possible for us to sell our farm-fresh produce for less than what it costs us to grow it.

Everyone Deserves Good Food


At Shalom Farms we believe everyone deserves good food — food that is good for our bodies, good for our communities, and good for the environment.

Yet, we know it can be extremely challenging to find affordable and high quality fresh produce in many parts of our city. Whether you are looking for a food pantry that offers fresh produce or for a place to purchase high-quality produce at a price you can afford, we want to help.

Our top priority is making sure sure we have plenty of produce available for folks who may not be able to easily find or afford other options. So if you have access to other fresh local options and/or can afford to shop at other local farmer’s markets, we encourage you to do so!

You can find a list of local farmers markets at Back to the Market. If you would like to support the work of Shalom Farms financially, consider making an online donation today! Have questions for us? Feel free to reach out for more information.

Where does the food come from?

Shalom Farms | Gathering of people at Powhatan Farm

The vast majority of seasonal fruits and vegetables available on the Mobile Market and distributed to our Healthy Retail Partners come from our farms — one in Midlothian, and one in Richmond’s Northside.

We use sustainable and organic growing practices, including avoiding using harmful chemicals, and are Certified Naturally Grown. We are committed to growing nutrient-dense fresh fruits and vegetables that are good for our bodies and the environment.

We also partner with other local farms and suppliers for occasional items, most often fruits that we don’t grow on our own farm. These items may be organic or conventionally grown, but are all high-quality and locally sourced.
