South of the James

Just across the James, Forest Hill is a hotspot for visitors who love food and the outdoors. Every Saturday of the year, the South of the James Farmer’s Market is held at Forest Hill Park. (Come hungry, and with reusable shopping bags.) Check out the Little Nickel, with Filipino, Hawaiian and Mediterranean fusion fare. And if you’re a kayaker or a hiker, head to the Huguenot Flatwater or the Buttermilk Trail. This whole neighborhood is bordered by an explorable section of the James River.
