Some people love the city. Some love the deep woods of the south. In this community, you can have the best of both worlds whenever and wherever you choose. Whether you work here, retire here or you’re just visiting, whatever you desire, THE HEART OF VIRGINIA HAS IT! Come be a part of the transformation and forward movement. We have seen an influx of businesses bring vibrancy to the historic downtown area, but the Town of Farmville, Prince Edward County and surrounding area has grown to welcome thousands of tourists and prospective buyers per year.

This area serves as the shopping hub for an eight-county region of over 150,000 people. Our community includes a thriving Main Street and several shopping centers. From Farmville to Cumberland, our stores are filled with unbelievable treasures. We are pleased to have shoppers come from all over the country to find unique retail and furniture shopping experiences.

If you are looking to spruce up your home or business, stop in at the well-known, premier furniture vendor on the east coast, Green Front Furniture. Farmville is home to Green Front’s flagship location, which offers world-class rugs, accessories and furniture. Green Front fills four former tobacco warehouses and six Main Street storefronts and even provides a field-guide for shoppers to navigate throughout.

This area is home to an outstanding diversity of stores that can easily help you fill up an entire day with shopping. Storefronts are teaming with excitement offering everything from bridal wear, eclectic boutiques, pottery and art stores, professional office supplies, books, and even kayaks! In fact, Appomattox River Company, which has been in business for almost 40 years, is the largest canoe and kayak specialty store around.

Shopping can make you hungry so we invite you to enjoy the varied array of cuisine offered. Local restaurants serve some of the finest foods in the South that can satisfy the tastes of absolutely anyone. You can enjoy fabulous BBQ, Tex-Mex, Asian & Mexican cuisine, country home style cooking, coffee cafes, pizza, homemade donuts, and a smattering of nationally known chains.

After shopping we invite you to stay at one of our many local hotels, or for the more adventurous, a “glamping tepee” or High Bridge cabin. One of our “newest” hotels is a 100-year-old renovated boutique hotel, Hotel Weyanoke, which also features four dining venues including a coffee bar, high-end Italian restaurant and wine bar, coal fire pizza oven, and fabulous rooftop bar. Farmville is also the home to new hotels, as well as established hotels from large chains.

We have a bit of everything you can think of here. As soon as you hit downtown Farmville, allow the smell and feel of community to overtake you. Our businesses pride themselves on doing business and doing it well.

Come experience our area and let us show you “community” and why we love it. We live here, we play here and we work here! Whether you are here for the day, a week or a lifetime- you are sure to enjoy the experience of our rich southern hospitality.
