Farmers Markets are now becoming a common fixture in Charleston, WV as residents start hankering for fresh, organic produce. Aside from getting the best ingredients, farmers markets also give shoppers to chat with the farmers who grow the vegetables, and support the local economy.
These farmers markets are seen to address the needs of the locals for healthy alternatives. As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared West Virginia as one of the most obese state in the USA, it is hoped that these markets make fresh fruits and vegetables more accessible for citizens aiming for a healthier lifestyle.
The West Side Farmers Market is located at the corner of Washington and Beatrice Streets.
