Every Thursday from 4:00 to 7:00 PM, Powhatan's favorite farmers and artisans come together at Westchester Commons to provide their wares for sale. Whether you are in the market for fresh produce for your dinner table or unique jewelry for your wardrobe, you will find it at the Powhatan Farmers Market from the beginning of May to the end of October.
The farmers market offers Powhatan residents the opportunity to enjoy locally-grown, low-pesticide produce and meats. They also give a venue for local artisans to showcase their good, so you can buy unique gift and home decor options. Items are fresher, more unique and often less expensive when you shop at the farmers market, and the Powhatan Farmers Market is packed with vendors. In fact, our Powhatan real estate agents believe the farmer's market is one of our area's best features, and here are five reasons, in particular, why we think you will love them too!

Our real estate agents are excited to see The Boathouse at City Point become a part of Hopewell's commercial revitalization. The restaurant's contemporary style, good service, and great food fit neatly into the city's entertainment traditions.
The Boathouse is located on a scenic waterfront site that presents diners with a dramatic view of the James and Appomattox Rivers. It offers locals a new upscale dining option for family celebrations or a special date night. Residents with homes in Hopewell need only drive a short distance to enjoy the newest restaurant in the area.
Boathouse owner, Kevin Healy, transformed an existing commercial building into a contemporary showplace. Exterior dining areas now offer a stylish yacht club atmosphere and an impressive view of both rivers.
Interior dining spaces, bar, and private event areas have an open, modern look. Each section is accessorized with trendy seating, modern light fixtures, and artisan-inspired metal, glass, and fabric decor.
The Boathouse at City Point serves a menu similar to the three other Boathouse restaurants. You can begin your meal with calamari, clam chowder, raw bar options, and a variety of additional delicious appetizer choices.
Entrees include fresh seafood, steak, and chicken dishes, and the restaurant's legendary Boathouse Crab cakes. Many menu items are prepared with locally-sourced ingredients.
The restaurant operates a full meal schedule each day.
The Boathouse event staff will tailor a special event that exceeds your expectations. The staff can plan the menu package of your choice: breakfast, lunch, dinner, hors d'oeuvres, and more. They keep your planning options open with venues sized to accommodate weddings, office parties, and other private events.
Boathouse Holiday Events
On July 1st, diners were the first to enjoy a Holiday meal at the new Boathouse at City Point. The chef creates a special menu for these occasions. Be sure to check the Holiday Menu page for upcoming events.

When you're searching for a home in Richmond, you are sure to hear about our Seven Hills. Although never receiving an official designation, according to a 1937 ordinance by the City of Richmond, the seven hills of RVA are: Union Hill, Council Chamber Hill, French Garden Hill, Navy Hill, Gambles Hill, Shockoe Hill and Church Hill. These neighborhoods have shaped RVA's history and are part of what makes it such a special place to live today.
Church Hill holds the distinction of being the first official neighborhood in Richmond. It's home to the original 32 blocks of the city and as such has a rich history and many historic buildings. The old architectural styles are still enjoyed and protected in Church Hill, and gas street lamps still line the red brick cobblestone sidewalks. This is a distinctive community that is full of character and charm.
Church Hill is found on the eastern end of Broad Street. It sits within walking distance of Richmond's downtown, but has its own collection of shops, restaurants and businesses. Church Hill also has a beautiful collection of residential properties that embrace the historic ambiance of this neighborhood. Here you can find homes that show the Greek Revival, Federal, Queen Anne and Italianate architectural styles and these properties have been carefully and lovingly maintained throughout the neighborhood's history. Today, the Church Hill North Historic District is part of the National Register of Historic Places. Homeowners and business owners alike are dedicated to preserving the history and architecture of the community for future generations.
Unique Blend of Past and Present
Today, Church Hill provides Richmond homeowners with the perfect blend of historic with modern. The homes and their classic architectural styles, along with the beautiful streetlamps and cobblestone sidewalks, are the historic side of Church Hill. It's also home to Chimborazo Park and the Richmond National Battlefield, which is home to a museum that houses artifacts from Civil War history. Patrick Henry Park is also in Church Hill near the site where he uttered his famous quote, "Give me liberty, or give me death!" Libby Hill Park, one of the first parks established in the city, is another historic community site. Everywhere you look in Church Hill, history awaits discovery.
Church Hill is modern at the same time. The community is located within walking distance of the city's vibrant and modern downtown. Within Church Hill, you will find local eateries, photography studios and locally owned shops. This blend of modern and historic is part of the reason Church Hill has continued to be a popular Richmond residential community.
If the history and ambiance of Church Hill appeals to you, our real estate agents at Napier ERA are ready to help. Contact us to start the search for your own historic property in Richmond's charming Church Hill neighborhood.
