Valley Pike Farm Market has created a gathering place that embodies a character that can’t be newly made; the atmosphere that the antiquated Sellers’ barn inherently has identifies as “home” for most of the community. It’s a place for us to meet by the hearth over a glass of wine, for old and new friends to share a local meal, and for all walks of life to celebrate together in the things that make the Valley that much sweeter. Valley Pike Farm Market has given us a place to simply be present, to build fellowship with one another, and to support small businesses within the constantly shifting agriculture industry.
Valley Pike Farm Market has given local businesses- the multi-generational farmers and the big dreamers and small-town entrepreneurs- an accessible outlet for their goods and wares. By working toward its mission of supporting Virginia farmers and local businesses to drive the area’s agritourism forward, Valley Pike Farm Market celebrates the very people, communities, and history that the Shenandoah Valley is made of.
The Market is home to over three hundred local craft beers and wines; it highlights the baking and confectionery talents of our neighbors, offers locally sourced meats and cheeses from Boar’s Head, and proudly carries a curated selection Virginia preservatives, bulk foods, and other goods. It offers an inviting coffee shop featuring local coffees and homemade pastries, a back deck to enjoy an outdoor lunch or an evening drink, and a loft for all to gather. Small businesses have been given an opportunity for the fruits of their labors to be seen and enjoyed; local farmers and makers have been given a platform to shed light on the agricultural economy that makes our community thrive.
Our beautifully restored lower level is the home of The Granary at Valley Pike, our private event and wedding venue. We host dozens of weddings each year, many corporate luncheons, networking events, and dinner functions, as well as many events to support our local community and charities, such as the Virginia Cider Festival at Valley Pike held each July to raise funding for Mercy House. Our events team has many more community driven events in the works, and we can't wait to share those as they develop.
