Now that summer is here to stay, it’s time for our farmers markets to reopen for the 2015 season! Farmers markets are a summertime staple in the Eastern Panhandle for many reasons, the food found at farmers markets is always the freshest around, it’s always local and patrons are able to feel good about shopping there—because they are helping both the environment (due to reduced shipping and packaging compared to produce at a national grocery store chain), and supporting the local economy! With so many reasons to love farmers markets, why wouldn’t you shop local?

Our The Chase and The Springs communities are conveniently located in an area with a number of booming farmers markets. This summer, discover the very best produce our region has to offer at one of these local West Virginia farmers markets:
