Take Loudoun Home by shopping directly from farms.
Loudoun County’s farm-to-consumer experience is going digital with the launch of the Loudoun Made Loudoun Grown Marketplace, an e-commerce platform that offers a one-stop-shop for consumers to support local farms.
Before you get started, it’s best to understand how this system works. Think of this like an online farmers market where you can buy anything you see, but each transaction is done directly with the farmer or rural business. We provide the space to do business, but we do not take any fees or participate in any transaction.
What is the process for making a purchase?
- While you can browse without one, you will eventually need a customer profile with credit card information in order to purchase from the Marketplace. Creating a profile also helps with identifying producers who have pick-up or delivery options near your address. All transactions are secured, and your personal information is stored by Local Line, which powers the Marketplace.
- All purchases will be ordered and paid for in advance unless otherwise stated by the vendor.
- All sales final. Businesses will not be offering refunds if you order and are unable to show up. We ask that you think through your schedule in advance, and only order if you are confident that you (or a substitute) will be able to pick up or if you are not home for your scheduled delivery. We appreciate your understanding.
- Plan ahead and work with the individual farms on order timing, as items like fresh produce are still in the fields until your order is placed. All deliveries and pick-ups at the farm will be at the discretion of the farmer.
- When ordering for pick-up at centralized locations, producers may suggest a minimum of 48 hours in advance of your pick-up window.
- Farmers will receive 100% of the sales price. Loudoun Economic Development does not charge any vendor fee for participation.
- The name that you use for your account is the name that farmers will label your products with.
I have a question or problem with my order. Who should I contact?
- When making a purchase, please direct all questions to the farm you are shopping from. They are the only people who can answer your questions about quantity, quality or process.
- If you are having technical difficulties accessing the site, please make sure that your Internet browser is fully updated. Your best user experience will be on the latest versions of Chrome or Safari.
- We are still new to this, and we appreciate your understanding as we work through the quirks of the system. Please let us know if you are having issues by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Am I picking up my products or expecting a delivery?
- Each farm and rural business is in charge of their own ability to allow pick-ups at the farm, delivery to your home, or delivery to a central location. Please check those options before checkout, which might include minimum purchase limits for certain forms of delivery.
- In addition to options for delivery, many of the Marketplace’s suppliers make their products available at central pickup locations throughout Loudoun County. Each of the three pickup locations set their own schedules and offer different suppliers.
- Before you come to pick-up your products, think about the size of your order and where you would like it in your car. (Can you just roll down a back window? Do you have plants and pies to pick up that take up a lot of space? Is your trunk clear enough for your order?)
- Picking up from a location with a curbside option? If possible, out of respect for social distancing, please come with a piece of paper on your dashboard clearly displaying the order name. This will minimize interaction and ensure accuracy for your fulfillment. Before coming, please note which vendors you ordered from. Not all vendors provide delivery or pick-up options.

What precautions are farmers and fulfillment staff taking for health and safety?
- Everyone handling your items has been given the latest health guidelines to ensure food safety. Only healthy workers will be at the market and we ask that you only send healthy drivers to pick up.
- To minimize interaction at pick-up locations with curbside delivery, market staff are willing to load the groceries so you do not have to exit your vehicle.
