Farmers Markets in the Eastern Panhandle


With the weather warming up there are a ton of things to get outside and finally do! Besides falling back into the habits of sweaty yardwork, there are other places that want you to fall into the habit of visiting them on the weekends: local farmers markets! Buying local not only supports the community, but also offers a fresher product produced in an environment that you know and trust. Visiting these wonderful farmers markets allows for relationships to be made with the staff and farmers that take the time to nurture and grow all the scrumptious foods and gives the chance for other vendor’s products to grace you and your friend’s dinner tables.

Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties all have their own special farmers markets. Each market contains specific items for that county or that market. Depending on which market you want to visit, depends on the great finds to discover there!

Aside from the larger markets, there are a few that take pride in what they can offer and only sell their own goods. These markets include: Butler’s Farm Market and Kilmer’s Farm Market.



Jefferson County Farmers Markets

While Berkeley County is a larger county than Jefferson there is no shortage of markets and farms to purchase crisp produce or juicy fruits from! Shepherdstown is known not only for Shepherd University, but also for the lot of local shops that line the streets. They also have a great Farmer Market. By being only open on Sunday, you would think that this small-town market wouldn’t get as much traffic as it does, but you would be wrong! The knowledgeable vendors and staff keep customers coming back for more! On the outskirts of town lies Morgan’s Grove Park which offers its own farmers market – Morgan’s Grove Market.

If you continue to follow Kearneysville Pike once you are done at Morgan’s Grove Market, you can head on into Charles Town and the Charles Town Farmers Market. Located in the heart of Charles Town, this market carries fruits, veggies, flowers, and offer live music all packed into one block!

Smaller markers for Jefferson County include Stony Ridge Farm. This is a micro-farm situated on 5 acres. The owners host a four-season food garden that feeds families all year ‘round in a local CSA (community supported agriculture).
