State, local officials to visit with farmers at Central City Market
This will mark Helmick’s first visit to the Central City Market since The Wild Ramp moved there in May.
Lewis will also make an announcement during the visit that outlines a new program sponsored by Unlimited Future, Inc. to increase local food production and agriculture-based jobs. The program will also support the 30 Mile Meal Huntington, a local food brand and network for restaurants, schools, farmers and other high-volume buyers.
Together, The Wild Ramp and Central City Farmers’ Market have created a destination for local food and other unique goods. The partnership has proved beneficial for both farmer-sourced markets and generated foot traffic for the other shops on 14th Street West.
The Wild Ramp offers a variety of local products including produce, meat, and self-stable goods mostly from within a 50-mile radius of Huntington. The Central City Farmers' Market remains independently operated and offers fresh produce and other goods from June through late October on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Both markets receive monetary support from the West Virginia Department of Agriculture.
