COVID-19 NOTICE: Masks are required by both vendors and customers. Distancing is encouraged.
In 2002 a small group of producers, community-based supporters, and West Virginia University Davis College representatives formed an advisory board with a goal of establishing a reliable Market that would encourage local farmers to supply quality, home-grown produce that would attract customers consistently week after week.
This initial Market was fairly different from the current Morgantown Farmers Market that we know and love. It originally ran from 7:30-11:30AM at the Seneca Center and had just a few vendors.
Our market became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and strives to provide local farmers with an outlet for their products, to ensure food is available to all, and to educate the public about the benefits of buying local.
