Augusta County, VA

The calendar says August, Mother Nature says it feels more like October! Generally when the grass is burning up and so are people, this year’s summer has been incredibly mild. That makes for perfect farmers’ markets across Central Virginia. The Augusta / Staunton Farmers’ Market is in full swing. They have two markets, Wednesday 7:00am to 1pm and Saturday 7:00am to noon. Our Shenandoah Valley photographer Norm Shafer stopped by the market recently and grabbed a few shots.
