Baked goods and fresh produce, locally grown by the farmers that sell it. That’s what you’ll experience at the Weirton Farmers Market. All produce is grown within 50 miles of the market location and is often picked that very morning, coming straight from the garden to you! You’re sure to find everything you want for healthier living while supporting the local growers of our community.
Another plus – marketers love talking about the food they produce and will be happy to share with you their favorite ways of preparing whatever you’re buying. Just try that at a big, impersonal store! Fresh air and sunshine, plus a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere are some of the reasons people look forward to our open -air market each year.
The Weirton Farmers Market is located in the Goodwill Parking Lot on Penco Road. There will be one market day per week, 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm, starting on the first Monday of July and running through the last Monday in October.
