DPFM's mission is to provide Henrico citizens with easy access to fresh and nutritious local produce, and other high quality products produced by local farms and small businesses. We encourage and support local growers, farmers and other producers as well as promote good health & nutrition, environmental stewardship and agriculture education through community outreach efforts. We believe that these principles will ultimately build a greater community.
