Keep the SOJ Market at Forest Hill Park year-round

Keep the SOJ Market at Forest Hill Park year-round

      Richmond, United States

Forest Hill Park has been the perfect home for the South of the James market for the past 6 years.  We have the ability to offer the market year-round, thanks to our dedicated vendors, and are seeking the opportunity to make the South of the James market a year-round function at Forest Hill Park, rather than moving to a different location for a few months each year.

We want FHP to be our forever home!  If you feel the same way, consider signing this petition and forwarding it to friends.

See you at the market!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This is the only farmer's market my husband and I attend. We've built some great relationships here and would love to continue supporting these local businesses! We don't go in the winter because of the location change - we much prefer Forest Hill Park area!

      Forest Hill Park and the South of the James Market have been linked together for so long that they should be regarded as inseparable. I would urge lease-holders and community leaders to keep it that way.

      This market has become a "go-to" for my weekly grocery needs. Besides just being a place to shop, it's become a place to catch up with friends. This is the way LOCAL was meant to be.
