farmbasket café

Fresh, local, and creative since day one.

A local and sustainable food approach is part of our heritage. From the popular Pimiento Cheese & Cucumber sandwich to the Tuscan BLT, our café menu continues to feature uncommonly fresh fare and the tastes of Virginia that are both old and new. Scratch made café soups and seasonal salads are daily features. Unique baked goodies include apple dapple cake, lemon nut bread and a seven layer caramel cake.

From the menu to the Blackwater Creek setting and outdoor seating, we’re the go to spot for hungry locals.

our story began with an apple

Welcome to a place that embraces the traditional, while exploring the new and unexpected.

From our roots as a roadside fruit stand in 1964, farmbasket has grown to become the premier destination in central Virginia for specialty food items and gift ideas for any occasion. The broad assortment of gourmet selections from our market will nourish and please even the most distinguishing palate. Our handpicked collection of giftable items and seasonal accents make for a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. Mingle through our gardening areas and talk to our green thumb experts about what plants are right for you, or grab a classic sandwich at the café, made with fresh, local ingredients. Every nook and cranny reveals a new surprise, an unexpected getaway-for lunch or just the kind of conversation that was once shared with friends at a fruit stand in 1964.
