You can order local food all season for delivery at Manakin Market through the ChiknEGG MarketPlace!
ChiknEGG MarketPlace connects our community with fresh, healthy food straight from our local farmers. With one order, one payment and one pick up, you can order food directly from different family owned and operated farms and small businesses right here in our area.

At the ChiknEGG MarketPlace, you shop by the item from our participating farms selecting only the items you would like to order. There is no minimum order and you are not required to order each week.  Orders are placed Thursday through Monday, with delivery at Manakin Market on the following Saturday morning.  After the season ends, we'll be delivering at Aw Shucks Country Store on Thursdays.

Very happy to see the sun at last!  Last weekend brought a HUGE loss of money to our local farmers and producers with all of the cancelled events, including the VABF Farm Tour (which they were not able to reschedule) and the State Fair.  I hope all of you will make a concerted effort to help make up some of the lost income by stocking up at the market and getting an early jump on your holiday shopping. We got our wood stove cranked over the weekend and I am looking forward to getting back into weaving again.  I had a blast at the State Fair showing folks how to weave using my American Peg Loom using alpaca yarn from my herd. I'll be doing another demonstration at Manakin Market this Saturday, so make sure to come visit us, and then maybe head out to Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery for their 2nd Anniversary Party.  Me, I'll be dashing over to Wyndham after the market to participate in their Annual Fall Festival.  Come visit me over by the beer tent on Saturday from 2-5pm if you live in Wyndham!

See you at the market, or in the kitchen!
