Farmers Christen Start of New Season

Posted:

Beckley (WVVA) -- Growers christened the start of a new season at Beckley's Uptown Farmer's Market.

The tailgate market in its second year featured everything from fresh-cut kale to squash.

Ed Centers was among the vendors set up on Monday. He has been selling his homemade jam at the Uptown Market for more than a year and could not be more pleased with this year's crop. "I think it's good to support the local growers. They're working to produce good food. It benefits them and it benefits the people buying the food too."

 The Uptown Tailgate Farmer's Market will be open through September on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3p.m.-5:30p.m. On Fridays, the market will be open from 10a.m.-1:30p.m.

The market is located on the Beckley Intermodal Gateway Plaza.
