Farmers' Market
West Virginia is home to several farmers markets. In many cases, these markets are considered community destination points where folks come together not only to purchase fresh produce and value added products, but enjoy entertainment and delectable, ready-to-eat foods.  The West Virginia Department of Agriculture assists farmers in correct labeling of their products, as well as issuing licenses for selling/distributing fresh eggs and meat products.  The WV Farmers Market Association provides mentoring and training opportunities for both new and experienced vendors.

The Department of Agriculture has management responsibilities for the outdoor portion of the Capitol Market in Charleston, West Virginia and manages Logan Farmers’ Market in Chapmanville, West Virginia. 
Each year from June through October, qualified West Virginia farmers and markets participate in the Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program. Eligible senior citizens and young mothers (WIC) utilize vouchers to purchase fresh West Virginia grown fruits and vegetables. Senior citizens may also use the vouchers for West Virginia honey.
