Local farmers market looking for food venders

BLUEFIELD — A popular farmers market could soon be expanding to include baked goods.

Organizers of the Almost Heaven Farmers Market are now looking for area nonprofit organizations interested in selling baked goods and other food items, according to local organizer Judy Silbaugh.

“We are looking for non-profit organizations that would like to raise money for their organization,” Silbaugh said. “They can sell food items, but no yard sale or flea market items. It is baked goods like hot dogs, barbecues, cakes, cookies, etc.”

The Almost Heaven Farmers Market is held every Tuesday and Saturday at the Kmart parking lot in Bluefield from 10 a.m. until everything is sold out. Silbaugh said organizers are looking at either Wednesday or Friday as a day for baked goods from area non-profit organizations and agencies to be sold.

“We are looking at either Wednesday or Friday,” Silbaugh said. “It is still being worked out.”

Silbaugh said the weekly farmers market continues to grow in popularity.

“We have such a nice time, and everyone has so much fun,” she said. “It is doing very, very well. Everybody is friendly and happy and selling their produce and baked goods.”

Area non-profits that would like to participate in the extension of the farmers market can contact Silbaugh at 304-327-7501.
