We're introducing the much anticipated and exciting

new producer:

We're so excited for River City Bakery's fresh from the oven, pre-order pie options

River City Bakery was established in 2017 by Colleen Geyer. Colleen’s baking journey began when she was 3 years old. She would stand on a stool in her family farm kitchen while watching and helping her grandmother make pies and rolls. Since then, her passion for baking has only grown. When not working on her family’s fruit farm or attending school, Colleen could often be found in the kitchen, working on several culinary projects.

How the Market Works

Each week our producers post the products they have available, setting their own prices, uploading their own descriptions and photos. You can read about their farming practices and contact them directly with questions.

Using our Buying Pages, you shop online with us any time between Friday at noon to Monday at midnight. You pay for your order online and then pick it up on the following Thursday afternoon at one of our Richmond area pickup locations.

Orders are delivered fresh, straight from the farms on Thursdays. Our producers share in the delivery process and we rely on volunteers to sort the orders at the pickup locations. This cooperative system allows us to keep delivery costs down to a minimum meaning more money goes back to the producers. read more...

How We Are Different

Fall Line Farms and Local Roots opened in the fall of 2008 with one goal in mind, to help small farms through the challenging season ahead. Since then, we have grown and developed but never wavered from this basic focus.

Our program allows small farms to sell their products as they come available at a competitive fair price that is set by them.

There is no minimum supply required for them to sell, allowing very small start up farms to grow and expand into a larger marketplace. We like to think of ourselves as an incubator for small sustainable farms.

Because our producers share in the delivery, we are able to keep our costs low. That means more money goes back to the farms. We are not a reseller. When you order you are buying directly from the producers in our market. read more...
