Welcome to Bennett's Creek Farm Market
Country Farm Market in the Heart of a Growing Community
Farm Market Beginnings
James “Jim” and Martha Shirley purchased Bennett’s Creek Farm Market in 1997 from the Matthews family patriarch and continued the business hiring family members for daily operations. The Matthews founded the market in 1963 to sell their family farm’s produce, meats, eggs, and milk. Four generations of the Matthews family members have worked in the market. With Jim’s vision of remodeling and expansion, the market’s offerings grew through the years adding a hot case, deli, fine wines, new menus, and seafood.
In 2022, Jim and Martha Shirley decided it was time to move towards retirement from their second career. They both wanted to have a tenant willing to continue Bennett’s Creek Farm Market and continue its growth and nostalgic presence in a fast-growing community. Steve Jefferys, culinary expert and visionary entrepreneur agreed to chart the course as the new General Manager in February. Steve and his wife, Nicole as Assistant General Manager, share a vision and goal to continue tried-and-true favorite recipes while adding some of Steve’s specialties.
Today, Bennett’s Creek Farm Market offers fresh cut meats, local produce, fresh seafood, made-to-order deli sandwiches, prepackaged cold case items, a hot case serving three meals a day with lunch and dinner specials, local Virginia products, fine wines and beer, grocery staples, ice cream and bakery items, and local honey. Enjoy a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere with delicious wholesome food when you shop at Bennett’s Creek Farm Market!
