The Romney Farmers Market is held in downtown Romney, WV normally from late May through October at 9 AM -12 Noon on Saturday mornings. Come early for the best selection; you will not believe how fast some items like raspberries and blueberries sell out! The Romney Farmers Market has significantly grown in volume the past few years as the interest in buying fresh and local foods has really taken hold with consumers. Higher fuel prices and much higher grocery store prices have encouraged people to rekindle an interest in local foods. And of course this is a throwback to the way things used to be, in a simpler time. Its also very progressive, for example, European farmers markets are open daily in many town centers. Best selling books like “The 100 Mile Diet”, “The Omnivores Dilemma”, “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle”, “Plenty”, “The Long Emergency” and many other books, web sites, blogs and articles have helped encourage the local interest too; not to mention the incidents of tainted processed products and imported food containing toxins and poisons. There’s even a new word to describe this, the Locavore. There’s truly a better and healthier way, and you’ll find it at the Romney Farmers Market. June is a normally start up month and of course its weather dependent. The market has started in mid May if the weather is warmer than normal. October is also sort of a transitional month as some growers are instead selling at local Fall festivals such as Autumn Glory in Oakland, MD and the Appalachian Festival in Frostburg, MD. Just keep in touch with this web site for announcements.
