Shenandoah Valley Ag & Arts Community Resource, Inc.

Shenandoah Valley Ag & Arts Community Resource, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing easier access to agriculture and arts in the Shenandoah Valley.  The South Street Barn Market (SSBM) is committed to community-driven activities and events.

 

SSBM, a year-round farmers' market that sets up at the American Legion Post #199 in Woodstock, Virginia, provides a venue free of charge for regional chapters of non-profit organizations that also support agricultural and arts education, including; Luke’s Backpack, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts of America, Future Farmers of America (FFA), 4-H Club, and Master Gardeners. Also through the market, farmers and artists alike have a year-round venue through which they can sell their local goods and provide valuable resources to the community. Both nonprofit and for-profit vendors are required to submit an application for review and acceptance, and for-profit vendors pay a booth fee.

 

With the support and dedication of the Board of Directors we are proud to: 

  • Make local, healthy foods more accessible to lower income families by accepting Virginia’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP);
  • Offer informational workshops and presentations;
  • Extend outreach to the community by recruiting a diverse group of agriculture and arts non-profit organizations as vendors at the Saturday market;
  • Support local non-profit organizations through fundraising efforts and activities.
