Farmers Market

Renee Pacarsic

The Pocahontas County Farmers Market has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for fresh produce, baked goods, local meats, eggs or something different you can find it at any of our three locations throughout the county.
Our Green Bank Market, located in the parking lot of Henry’s Quick Stop, is open from 3 to 6 p.m. every Wednesday. Our Linwood Market, located in the parking lot of the Linwood Library at base of Snowshoe Mountain, is open from 3:30 to 6 p.m. every Friday and our Marlinton Market, located near the First Avenue Mini Park, is open 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
As the season goes on the Farmers Market will have more and more produce available. Some of our vendors have high tunnels and greenhouses which enable them to have produce earlier in the season. Many of our vendors have outside gardens which are subject to the weather. We have been lucky as it seems the weather has been on the gardener’s side. There have been many days lately where we have had warm days and some rain. Within the next month you can look forward to seeing a wide variety of produce at the market. Some produce you will find this week at the market include; fresh greens, beets, cauliflower, broccoli, rhubarb, strawberries and herbs just to name a few.
But the Farmers Market is much more than just produce. We have eggs, baked goods, freshly ground flours, molasses, lard, vanilla extracts, maple syrup, jams, jellies, local meats, seafood, charcoal, flowers, unique fabrics, quilts, potato bakers, sewing accessories, specialty yarns, hand knitted apparel, soaps, jewelry, nature paintings and colorful tie dyes.
We also have PCFM totes, cookbooks and T-shirts. All proceeds help support the market.
We are always looking for new vendors so if that’s something you might be interested in, come down to the market for more information.
Maxine Shearer is a seasoned vendor who continues to be an inspiration to all of us at the market. Even after a recent house fire Maxine has continued to set up at the Marlinton market. Her friends, faith and determination has helped her through the process. Maxine offers a variety of baked goods, candies, eggs, produce, jams and jellies. Come to the Marlinton market and visit with Maxine for an uplifting experience and try some of her amazing products.
The Market has had several new vendors so far this year.
Joe Hefferman with Joe Fish Intermountain Seafood offers fresh and frozen seafood. Joe usually sets up at the Linwood and Marlinton markets. He has a variety of seafoods including fish, crabs and shrimp. This past Saturday Joe brought his smoker to the market and it filled the air with an amazing aroma. It can be very difficult to find good seafood in Pocahontas County so come to the market and try something new.
There are so many reasons to shop at your local Farmers Market. Whether you’re a new or continuous customer, we appreciate your support!
