Farm Fresh is a Virginia-owned, independently-operated grocery store, deli, and butchery in the Tobacco Row/Shockoe Bottom district of Richmond.
The grocery store first opened its doors in 2003 under the name "The Market at Tobacco Row"—a much anticipated and welcome addition to the neighborhood. In 2018, then-owner Supervalu sold the store to Neighborhood Grocery Holdings, run by several grocery veterans with stores in downtown Charlottesville and Crozet.
While Farm Fresh Richmond went through several owners and iterations before settling as it exists today, the Farm Fresh family knows one trait is more important than ever: a true dedication to customer service. Since 2000, the cornerstone of NGH's business has been our relationship with customers. At Farm Fresh, that means our team strives to serve the community with the best products for the best price—and with superior customer service.
Whether it's the produce manager who jokes with you as he points out the season's best local tomatoes or the seafood employee who stays past her shift to make sure your steamed shrimp come out just right, true customer service shines through with every visit to Farm Fresh. After all, we think it's the customers that make this business truly special.
