The recent warm sunny days have contributed to the growth and abundance of fresh local greens now available at the Winter Market.
Farmers from Alderson to Marlinton will be at the market Saturday, Mar. 3, with a variety of delicious lettuces, salad mix, kale, rainbow chard, bok choi, winter vegetables, apples and more. Along with the sprouting of greens comes renewed egg production, and the Winter Market now hosts several regular egg vendors.
Several vendors are new to the Winter Market this season, including Donna Myles of Renick, who has homemade jams and shelled black walnuts along with woven rugs. Moonstruck Farm has wonderful thick maple syrup, coffee and pastries. Spiral Roots Sanctuary has coffee, teas, herbs, body care products and knitted crafts. Blue Moon Bagels offers bagels, muffins, cookies, sticky buns and other pastries, and Yellow Foot Farm is a 4-H FFA egg enterprise featuring our youngest new vendors.
The Indoor Winter Farmer’s Market is open Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Gus Douglass Building at the State Fairgrounds of West Virginia next to the Flea Market, where in season, vendors have bread, baked goods, Persian food, greens, vegetables, herbs, pork, poultry, game bird meat, lamb, beef, eggs, chair massage, handmade wearables, crafts, and kid’s activities, and the Market Café. The Winter Market accepts SNAP, EBT and credit cards.
