Farmers Market kicking off summer season

After finishing up the winter market season at the Mon County Center at Mylan Park, the Morgantown Farmers Market kicks off its summer season Saturday back downtown at the Morgantown Market Place on Spruce Street.

The market will be held weekly at this space through November from 8:30 a.m.-noon Saturdays, and features a diverse group of farmers selling local food and goods.

Products sold at the Morgantown Farmers Market are all produced within 50 miles of Morgantown by the vendors themselves. Products available include fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs, cheese, jams, jellies, honey, maple syrup, locally raised meats, woolen products, soaps, dried beans, cornmeal, flours, kombucha, mushrooms and bedding plants.

Each market will feature a local nonprofit distributing information and musicians adding to the ambiance.

The Morgantown Farmers Market strives to make fresh healthy food accessible to all people, regardless of income. Currently the Morgantown Farmers Market Growers Association accepts benefits through SNAP (EBT/food stamps). Many vendors accept credit cards, and all vendors accept cash and market tokens purchased with credit/debit/SNAP cards at the market information booth.
