As you visit VBPL this summer you’ll find the usual: books, e-books, CDs and plenty of free events as part of the Summer Reading Challenge
. But at four libraries, you can also pick up fresh produce.
Local farmers set up stands each week, offering fresh, locally-grown fruit and vegetables for purchase. Here are the details:
Cromwell's Produce - Princess Anne Area Library, Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting June 2, 2015.
Flanagan Farms - Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library, Tuesdays & Fridays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting June 19, 2015

Virginia Beach Public Library and the Virginia Beach Agriculture Department have partnered to provide citizens with another convenient access point to purchase local farm products. Produce will vary by location and by what’s in season, including summer favorites like greens, lettuce, melon, tomatoes, sweet corn and strawberries to name a few. Specialty items like jam and salsa will also be available.
