Market Open May Through November

The Floyd Farmers Market is Expanding!

The Floyd Farmers Market has been going strong for over a decade, and it is finally time for more growth. Under SustainFloyd’s leadership there are some exciting expansions to look forward to in 2021 including Thursday evening market hours, additional vendors at the Village Green on Saturdays, a new online shop for pre-orders, and updated website. 

Mission and Work

SustainFloyd is a rural nonprofit in the Blue Ridge Mountains that undertakes projects to support the environment, agriculture, renewable energy and community well-being.

Supporting the growth of our community’s next generation requires a community commitment, which is why we work closely with local and state governments and agencies, local businesses, like-minded non-profits and local citizens. Together we can find ways to develop the financial and ecological health of our community for the well-being of all citizens of Floyd County. But we also join with other communities throughout the region and around the globe to model new ways of living on, working in, and caring for the world around us.

Our project areas focus on efforts to:

  • Localize our economy
  • Enhance and protect natural and cultural resources
  • Advance issues related to strengthen food systems, energy independence, transportation, waste and recycling, and education

Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do.
