For me, there's nothing more disappointing than seeing a delicious-looking meal on a non Virginia-based Foodstagram and realizing that I won't be able to try it. My feed is often plagued by pictures of beautiful food from California, when I live in Virginia. 

If you're a fellow Virginian, then you're in luck. There are plenty of Virginia-based Foodstagram accounts posting food that you can actually go out there and try. Here are a few of my favorites. 


This account is run by self-proclaimed marketing geeks promoting foodie culture in Virginia. They repost pictures tagged #vafoodie. If you follow them, you'll see a mix of restaurant dishes and local produce from across Virginia. 


This account is run by Fredericksburg based foodie, Janean. She loves to bake and often posts pictures of her projects, the recipes for which are on her blog. You'll also find photos of delicious meals from restaurants in Fredericksburg. 


Kelly, a foodie from Richmond, loves to post restaurant previews and reviews on her blog. If you follow her Instagram account, you'll get beautiful pictures and abridged, but honest, opinions.

Keevil and Keevil Kitchen and Grocery is located in Charlottesville, Virginia, but they're posting good eats that no one will want to miss. I use this account as inspiration for my own cooking. I'm always keeping an eye out for specials that are too good to pass up. 


This fitness and food account is run by Norfolk-based runner Julia Shelby. I love the mix of fitness, restaurant review, and recipe posts on her feed. I check her blog whenever I see a recipe post that looks too delicious to pass up. 


If you're looking for a restaurant, cafe, and bakery guide for Virginia, look no further.

If you keep a close eye on their feed, you'll also find an occasional giveaway or discount.
