Dorey Farmers Market, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization) has partnered with the County of Henrico Rec & Parks to establish the Dorey Park Farmers Market. Located adjacent to the Dairy Barn at Dorey Park, the Market's mission is to provide the citizens of Eastern Henrico with easy access to fresh and nutritious local produce, food and crafts of the highest quality. We want to encourage and support local growers, farmers and other producers to market their products directly to consumers as well as support environmental stewardship and agriculture education. We believe that these principles will ultimately build a greater community.
We accept SNAP benefits.

Brief History of Dorey Park
Dorey Park was purchased in 1979 by the County of Henrico from Belle Ferguson Dorey, widow of dairy farmer Fred Orwin Dorey. Fred and Belle married in 1923 and together they raised six children on the Dorey homestead site, a 400-acre property consisting of a farmhouse, dairy barn, bunkhouse, tenant farmer house, chicken house, springhouse, silos and a small barn. Mr. Dorey worked the dairy farm until 1966.
The County opened Dorey Park in 1984. The Division of Recreation and Parks renovated the dairy barn and opened it to the public in 1992 as the Dorey Recreation Center. Click below to learn more about the history of Dorey Park and other historic sites in our community.
