This is the story of the Morgantown Farmers Market in Morgantown, WV. It began 11 years ago at the Seneca Center with a few vendors and some community-based & WVU Davis College support. To those that originally decided to come together and start a Market - MORGANTOWN THANKS YOU.
Since the beginning, the Market has gone through a number of changes and varied locations. It has faced adversity and tension on numerous sides. However, the Market has lived on and now has more than 30 vendors that come together every Saturday from the first weekend in May through the first weekend in November to create a sought out community event.
In a few weeks, our Market will finally have an official home in Morgantown in the form of an actual set structure. The Morgantown Market Place will allow the Morgantown Farmers' Market to have a permanent presence in Downtown Morgantown. During the week the pavilion will be used for parking, but on Saturday mornings it will be bustling with customers hunting for their favorite produce and vendors. As more and more of the Morgantown Market Place goes up, it is becoming harder to contain our excitement. However, this project has been five years in the making, so we can wait a few more weeks, but with child-like anticipation assuredly.
As this story does not have a real beginning nor hopefully ever an ending, please support the Morgantown Farmers Market on our continuous journey.
I hope you enjoy our photos and updates.
