We continue to be a wonderful source of locally grown or made products. As a “producer market”, we do not allow resale of items purchased elsewhere, as occurs in many markets in the region. Be sure to ask us about our wares and we will proudly tell you about our animals, vegetables and goods.

Since my announcement that I quit Facebook, I’ve received two types of responses. My parents’ generation wants to know why I’m quitting, but my generation cheers me on. “Good for you!” “I should do that.” One person even commented, “You must feel so free!” These encouraging and rather wistful responses have confirmed in me what I already suspected: Facebook causes far more angst than we want to admit.

An investigation by the Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office into the disappearance of Robert Lee Hourihan – missing for two years as of April 8 – has proven fruitless.

Before one knows it, summer will be upon us and the kids will be out of school. What better way to spend time with the kids than to participate in the library’s annual summer reading program? The themes this year are dig into reading, beneath the surface, and groundbreaking reads. Cindy Hoffman, director of the Fluvanna Public Library, stated she is currently working with the county in an effort to get an outreach program into the communities and lure children to the library this summer.

Twenty-five years from now, Palmyra may look very different. There may be a new roundabout, a new Rt. 644, and thousands of additional cars whizzing up and down the road. What’s more, 230 acres of currently undeveloped land may hold 1,180 new housing units as part of a proposed development called Walker’s Ridge.
At that size, Walker’s Ridge would be the largest development in Fluvanna County after Lake Monticello. Consisting of condos, townhomes, single-family detached houses, and duplexes, Walker’s Ridge would host playgrounds, a pool, and a homeowners’ association, as well as 180,000 square feet of commercial space.
