Farm to Table via Your Library

As you visit your local VBPL branches you’ll find the usual: books, e-books, movies, music​ and plenty of free events. At these libraries, you can also pick up fresh produce:

Vaughan Farms

Thurs., 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
beginning June 27

Vaughan Farms

Tues., 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Flip Flop Farm

Local farmers set up stands each week, offering fresh, locally-grown fruit and vegetables for purchase.

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.
