Locally sourced produce is always preferable to moon produce, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh, earthbound bounty with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh produce at Five Points Community Farm Market in Norfolk. The market is open Wednesday through Sunday (operating times vary each day).
Five Points Community Farm Market was established in 2006 as a cooperative that allows market managers to work with more than 50 local farmers to collect, price, and sell quality local produce and products. The market is housed in an air-conditioned facility, allowing shoppers to browse healthy options grown in the fertile state of Virginia, such as orchard- grown apples ($1.79/lb.), crisp cucumbers ($1.99/lb.), sweet potatoes ($1.29/lb.), eggplant ($2.99/lb.), and vine- ripe tomatoes ($2.59/lb.), without sweating or withering into a human raisin beneath the sun.
Although this deal is only valid for the main produce market, there is a café, as well as third-party vendors who sell local dairy, all-natural meat, baked goods, and tickets to Pat Boone's 2011 Super Bowl pre-game concert.
- The market now highlights the corner of Church and 26th Street, with its dark reddish brick exterior, and outside eating area in the back surrounded by a bountiful vegetable garden. Pumpkins, watermelons, and okra can be seen growing which is a great learning experience for the entire family. – LaBarbara Mack, Examiner
- Our farm market has a great, diverse selection of healthy and delicious foods. Not to mention, they're so friendly! – Alana F., LocalHarvest
