Farmers Markets - General Info
In June 2018, the WVDA began registering both Farmers Markets and Farmers Market Cottage Food Vendors in WV as a result of regulation established in Senate Bill 375. The new rules remove local health departments from the farmers market vendor permitting process, transferring the authority to the WVDA.

The intention of the new rule is to create an avenue for entrepreneurship and allow the direct sale of certain acidified foods to boost WV local small producers.
