We represent farmers markets, producers and the communities that help them thrive.
We are updating our website. If things are not where they used to be, or if you’re having trouble finding something you’re looking for, please send Erica an email at email@example.com. She will be more than happy to help you while we are in the remodeling process.
Our mission is to strengthen the capacity of West Virginia farmers markets and positively impact the communities they serve by providing education, advocacy, and access to healthy, locally grown food
We envision a community where West Virginia farmers markets provide healthy, local food, economic opportunities for producers and serve as a vibrant gathering place for all residents.
We aim to strengthen viability of farmers markets across the state through our activities, such as meetings, surveys, trainings, development of resources and policy work. Cooperation is fostered among members in solving problems related to the production and marketing of farm products and improvement in marketing activities. The Association is a membership-based organization supported in part by both membership fees and grant dollars.
